Jean Louis Simeray

Jean Louis Simeray

Born on 23rd march 1964

French Artist from lyon, living in shanghai Painter and sculptor, Artistic Director and Graphic Designer. Graduated from the Graphic Art Institute of Lyon France

Jean Louis Simeray does not talk about his art, he more freely or ironically expresses his talent through a huge variety of techniques, ideas, colors, media and can mix very classical work such as nature morte or portraits with collections of paintings which express the real rebel nature of his inspiration. The violence of his drawing combined with the incredible intensity of the colors gives to his work an amazing strength. He can bounce from oil to acrylics, ink to new media, photo to sculptures, from bright colors to dark black, from water colors to sand, rest in this sand without painting for months, then run to Shanghai and have ten exhibitions in a year … Often called a tightrope walker in art, he is totally unpredictable in the expression of his internal quest. He is in any case never where expected !
