Fanch Ledan

Francois “Fanch” Ledan Born in 1949 in the region of Brittany in France. 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 and traveled extensively. A combination of these aspects of his life led him to enroll in an MBA program at Sacramento State University in 1972 while pursuing a career in art in San Francisco. The following year he earned his MBA and was offered his first exhibition at a San Francisco gallery . He began to realize he could make a living by chasing his passion, and spent the next decade and a half living in California and traveling to France and other European countries for artistic inspiration. Fanch’s popularity and fame grew as he exhibited his art all around the world, including locations as diverse as London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tel Aviv. He currently spends his time between studios in France, California and meeting his fans and collectors on cruise ships and at special events.
