Born in 1949 in the region of Brittany in France, Francois "Fanch" Ledan is the youngest child of a doctor and a dentist. In
his youth, he was educated locally but it was not long before he decided to study in Paris. It was here that he earned three
bachelor's degrees in mathematics, science, and philosophy by the age of nineteen. In addition, this city, with its charm and
passionate life, drew Fanch into its famed art scene. While he continued along a professional path, he explored his artistic
interests; a combination of these aspects of his life led him to enroll in an MBA programme at Sacramento State University in
1972 and pursue a career in art in San Francisco.
The following year, 1973, was auspicious one for Fanch: he earned his MBA and was offered his first exhibition after showing
some of his paintings to a San Francisco gallery director. He began to realize he could make a living with his passion and
spent the next decade and a half living in California and traveling to France as well as many European countries for artistic
inspiration. Fanch's popularity and fame grew as he exhibited his art all around the world, including London, New York, Los
Angeles, and Tel Aviv.
Fanch's inspiration expresses itself in his signature style. His work is often a study in contrast presenting a careful
balance of the real and the possible in his interior and exterior landscapes. The exuberance evident in the color and bustle
of the images he paints are balanced by his worldly knowledge and an unidentifiable underlying tension. Using high vantage
points and deep, distant views, Fanch has the talent of bringing viewers into his work while keeping them removed. His skills
intrigue and fascinate collectors around the world, making Fanch one of the most respected and noted artists of today.
