• Jæn = art + illustration + graphic design + character design + photo + creative ideas + ∞
              Versatile artist currently residing in Bordeaux (France), I have explored the world of art by every possible mean: drawing, painting, music composition, graphic design, photography, writing, storytelling and even research - while writing a thesis on a contemporary japanese artist. You can enjoy a selection of my personal and commissioned works by browsing the menu on the left. 
              I work with traditional drawing, watercolour, acrylics and digital magic to produce a work mixing influences from pop culture, mysticism, science, spirituality, pop surrealism, low brow, street art and contemporary illustrators and character designers. Besides the research for aesthetic experiences and pleasure while making art, the conceptual motives behind my work has gradually shifted from abstract, metaphysical and philosophical themes to something filled with more guts and emotion.
             If you  need (or want) a quaint illustration, a character with character, original graphic design, unique art or creative ideas, I'm  available to discuss with you and make any kind of your projects bloom.

    (If you want to know more, here is an interview from NeonMob and another from The SRK)
              Créatif polyvalent habitant actuellement à Bordeaux, j'ai exploré les terres de l'art sous toutes les latitudes : dessin, peinture, musique, graphisme, photographie, prose, scénario, ou même recherche, à l'occasion d'un mémoire de Master sur un artiste  contemporain japonais. Vous pouvez explorer une partie de  mes travaux personnels et de commande via le menu de gauche.
              Aujourd'hui, je travaille principalement le dessin, l'aquarelle et l'acrylique, couplés à la magie du numérique, pour produire des travaux synthétisant des influences de la culture populaire, de la science, du mysticisme et de la spiritualité, du pop surréalisme, du low brow, du street art et de l'illustration et du character design contemporains. La motivation conceptuelle derrière mes œuvres est progressivement passé de thèmes abstraits, métaphysiques et philosophiques à quelque chose de plus émotionnel et viscéral, et une plus grande place pour la recherche du plaisir et de l'esthétique dans la création artistique.
             Si vous avez besoin - ou envie ! -  d'une illustration atypique, d'un personnage à forte personnalité, d'un travail graphique original, d'une œuvre unique ou d'idées créatives, je suis disponible pour discuter avec vous et de faire fleurir tout type de projet.
