Born in Paris in 1913, amidst a new revolution, both socially and artistically, most of his art education was cultivated in the Ecole Speciale de Dessin d’ Boulevard Belleville.
A still life painter for many years, Chailloux captured the essences of nature’s treasures from flower buds to blossoming petals, to exotic floral displays from his own garden. He was a collector of vases and extraordinary trinkets which provided limitless compositions.
Chailloux brings to the field of still life art paintings a poetic softness
without hard edges. He weaves together which are muted with colors that are pure and intense. He even adds extra pigment to his paints, enhancing their already vibrant quality. Chailloux keeps one goal in mind … perfection.
In 1940, he became a member of the Salon des Artistes Francais, and began exhibiting regularly. The recognition his work received allowed him the opportunity to enter the Salon de la Nationale exposition of 1943. In 1945, he exhibited at the Salon de Independence his still life works, and in becoming a member of the Salon de la Marine was invited to show his collection of nautical still life’s and marine compositions.
Today Chailloux is very popular throughout France and in London and New York. He resides on a large property in a quiet village just south of Paris.
