André Nadal was born in Oran; Algeria in 1952. At the age of 10 years old, after the liberation of Algeria, he moved with his family to France. In 1969, passionate about drawing, Nadal enrolls at the Fine Arts School of Perpignan to further his studies with an emphasis on technical drawing and architecture. After the birth of his daughter, Isabelle, in 1980, Nadal discovers abstract painting. In 1983 after multiple trips to the United States, Nadal decides to abandon technical drawing to devote himself solely to painting. His skill as technician and draughtsman distinguish his own abstract explorations in paint, which he readily incorporates within the body of his highly evolved and detailed conceptual works. Nadal’s work continues to be highly regarded and collected. Since 2007, he has divided his time between his two studios in south of France and Paris.
