Pascal  Lecocq, PhD, is the painter of the diving world most recognized picture: The Matador.

He is the Painter of Blue who paints as a stage director, on high blue backdrops, sky, figures, funny divers, all between hypperrealism and surrealism, flavored with humor.

Pascal’s paintings have been exhibited worldwide in more than 300 solo exhibitions since 1977, and in museums in France (2000-2001) and USA (2012-2013).

He is also a set and costumes designer for many operas since 1986.

Pascal is doing workshops and children drawing contests to help and promote children to express themselves by painting and being concerned by the environment.

The French painter lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, since 2003.
