JeanJerome's universe is applied bold colors, juxtaposed with a subtle work of halftone; voluble geometry, rounded florescences in an explosion of shapes. From this mix of paintings emanates a vital radiance which spreads powerfully beyond the canvas.
It was during his adolescence that JeanJerome tried his hand at the art of tagging, graffiti and sculpture. His references are those of urban culture and hip hop. The discovery of the book “Spraycan Art” and his meeting with the teachers Patricia & Philippe Legendre-Kvater who integrate him at the School of Art in Etampes are the triggers of his approach.
Among other things, he is studying their “drawing by play” technique. Then, he began to learn marble. During his artistic research, he experimented with jewelry at the Bastille goldsmith workshop, Paris. JeanJerome expresses himself through urban sport through roller skating and Longboarding. He is one of the founders of the Friday rollerblading hikes in Paris.
In 2004, he resumed his initiation to jewelry with Ossip Frolov in Copenhagen while remaining connected to urban culture. But above all, he resumes his technical and artistic research.
Back in France, He participated in collective exhibitions by diversifying both the supports and the pictorial medium.
His starting point?
Street Art, of course, but also Art Nouveau. He appreciates the curves, the colorful audacity and the decorative aspect. Indeed, when we observe the artist, we perceive that the latter approaches his canvas by starting a long work of goldsmith whose he ignores the outcome. And yet, the finished canvas, the artist reveals a sense of composition, balance of colors and lines! It is also with this in mind that JeanJérôme likes to share his art of live performance.
This desire with which he marks the urban space of his borrows here joins the concept of Art Nouveau: any medium makes sense as soon as it introduces the possibility of art into our daily lives. Under his label, an energy and creativity emerges which, depending on the media, adapts to the textures in an urban and elegant orchestral movement.
We offer various original works by the artist JeanJerome.
