MABOUNGA Gatien
> 1964, Pointe-Noire (Congo)
He learned from his father the bookbinder by trade and is studying in boiler. His gifts are revealed by his father for whom he had the idea to enrich the leather color pigments and a poet brother gives him a taste for words evocative images. Its color can also accommodate chance, and a transparency involuntarily obtained after he cleaned bottles and brushes. With his brother, he is open to art and poetry. In 1984 he created his first abstract works and moved to France in 1989.

MACRÉAU Michel
> 1935, Paris - 1995 (France)
He had an artistic education during which he participated in realising cartoons of Le Corbusier tapestries. After several collective experiences, his first individual exhibition, in 1962 at Raymond Cordier's gallery, was a great success. It was the start of a long series of exhibitions in France and abroad. In 1969, the Paris Musée d'Art Moderne bought a first painting (a second was bought in 1982). However, Marceau started having doubts in 1972 and became depressive obliging him to make long stays in hospital. It was the emergence of young artists such as Basquiat or Combas at the start of the 80's that restored his faith in his work. He now appears to have been a precursor for the 'Figuration Libre' artists.

MÉNICHETTI Eudes
> 1969, Paris (France)
Menichetti is a child of the TV, Pif Gadget and Tout l'Univers. He practices self-portrait with humor and fantasy and says the chronicle of her life with irony shots drawings and scholars and turbulent assemblies. He seeks what is repressed; he explores the networks of the nervous system, blood vessels, which is underlying, which is part of us and yet remains our unknown. It probes, dissects and exposes the human body (the body) to better explore the cerebral world with the desire to explain the existence and human potential. Fumes black fantasy with a latent chimeras return to fight against smug happiness, paradise of childhood revisited by self-concern: what grasp, frightened, without respite, the tormented soul of sensitivity of the artist.

MOIZIARD Andrée and Jean
> 1940 et 1938, Paris (France)
Their origins are Parisian, which is where they were born, but in 1968 they decided to live in the countryside in Bourgogne. Their studio is now located at Aisey-sur-Seine. They have had over a hundred exhibitions including the Galerie Béatrice Soulié, or Halle Saint Pierre at Paris. United in life and both art lovers, they present a poetic world where falsely naive landscape paintings (usually painted by Andrée) are confounded by divers assemblies (reliquaries under glass domes shaped by Jean). It is difficult to separate the two artists and often their exhibitions are installations that are reconstructions of their living space.

MUSIC Zoran
> 1909, Bukovica (Slovenia) - 2005, Venice (Italy)
He was born on the border between Italy and Slovenia and became a painter and engraver of the Nouvelle Ecole at Paris. Zoran Music wanted to become an art teacher and entered the Zagreb Fine Art Academy in 1930. The desert-like landscapes of Castille brought back memories of his childhood. In September 1935, at the start of the civil war, Music left Spain for Maribor. In October 1943,he visited Venice for the first time. He was arrested by the Gestapo in 1944 at Trieste and imprisoned for twenty six days in a cell at the Dachau concentration camp. He chose the second solution and became prisoner no. 128231. He was able to obtain paper by tearing the frontispieces out of the books in the camp library. He diluted the ink so it would last longer and also used pencils and chalk to secretly create several hundred drawings. He returned to Venice in 1945 where Ida Cadorin lent him her studio. In 1948, he went to Gorizia to collect document required for his wedding to da Cadorin Barbarigo which took place in September 1949. In 1951, the "Prix Paris" was organised at Cortina d'Ampezzo by the Paris Centre Culturel Italien de Paris (at the initiative of Campigli, Severini), and the jury consisted of artists and critics (Jacques Villon, Ossip Zadkine, Marcel Arland, Jean Bouret, André Chastel, Frank Elgar). It awarded the painting prize (a personal exhibition at the Galerie de France) to Music and Antonio Corpora. In 1952, Myriam Prévot and Gildo Caputo also organised Music's first exhibition at Paris and offered him a contract that would allow him to share his time between Venice and Paris. A new series of works, entitled ‘Nous ne sommes pas les derniers’, was produced between 1970 and 1976 and returned Music to the tragic time that he had spent at Dachau. The paintings and engravings of this series are sprinkled with mountains of corpses which are the echo of the multiple exactions that accompany them, especially the decolonisation and the rise of communist totalitarianism. Jacques Lassaigne consecrated the first retrospective of a living artist at the Paris Musée d'Art Moderne to Music in 1972. With his sight slowly failing, the Galeries Nationales Françaises du Grand Palais consecrated a great exhibition to Music in 1995.
