Gilbert Bria was born in 1933 in Cannes, France.

Gilbert Bria started to exhibit his paintings in 1958. In 1963, he exhibited with Cocteau, Lurcat, Picasso, and Picabia. Bria mainly exhibited in France through 1970. After 1971, he exhibited in Switzerland, Italy and in the USA.  Henri Kissinger was said to have purchased one of his paintings to be exhibited at the White House.

Many paintings were ordered by the Embassy of the German Democratic Republic in Paris, the Embassy of Paraguay in Spain, and by Princess Faiçal from Saudi Arabia for her palace.

“Bria does not lock himself in a system. And the connecting thread is without any doubt the style. It is salutary that an artist, and this becomes rare, has the freedom and the courage not to lock himself in an isolated world.”  Francois Nedellec , Vice-president curator of the Association of the French curators.
