Victor Gounel is a French figurative painter and architect, living and working in Berlin, Germany. Holder of a State Diploma in Architecture, he studied at The National Superior School of Architecture in Montpellier, France and at the School of Architecture & Visuals Arts of Laval University in Québec, Canada. 

Fascinated by images, Victor Gounel paints portraits as well as land- and seascapes. His non-conceptual, intuitive style illustrates both the fragility and the importance of intimacy.
