The Jo V footprint

The Jo V footprint

Street Completely self-taught artist, L'empreinte Jo V expresses his art on all supports and started with tag and graffiti in the streets of Paris when he was younger. His practice is in its essence supported by emotion, whether in the photo, digital, virtual, or in his paintings, he seeks to capture a look, a moment, the expression and especially the emotion of a moment, a fraction of a second, ephemeral and volatile moment so that it becomes eternal.

Each painting represents for him the magic of an instant. Bring home from the street ... Made on any medium, essentially on objects found in the street, everything is recycled. Mostly wood, oak planks, assembled pallets, hardboard, kitchen board, cardboard, old abandoned canvas, old cupboard doors, slates, sheet metal, I give them a second life, his technique comes from the spraycan street arts , acrylic paint, oil, water, India ink, felt-tip pens, dye, charcoal powder, charcoal…

He starts from a base, one of his photos, a drawing, or any other medium, something that inspires him… His signature is simply his imprint, hence his artist name: L'empreinte Jo. V. With always the desire to capture a moment of life, and to give emotion in a look…
