Jean-Marc Le Jeune
Jean-Marc Le jeune is a painter and draftsman. Passionate for more than twenty years by the energy of the movement, he translated on various supports figurative compositions on this theme.
Jean-Marc sketches, draws and paints the energy that animates all the people he meets for many years: dancers, slamers, sportsmen, musicians ... during their training. He intervenes in the events: the Battle Pro, the WPS, Just4Rockers for hip hop, but also in concerts, and many other places. ... Moving bodies, portraits, in the different environments that he regularly meets every week.
To grasp the instant by drawing has become second nature in its expression. Trying to transcribe as quickly as possible the movement he observes and translate it into color or black and white.
Installed in Essone, France, in his studio, he realizes his works by remixing everything he has in memory of the various events in which he participates.
He also creates tables, posters, illustrations and logos for all those who request it.
In March, 2018 I went to France for bboy event "Lille Battle Pro." Then I visited a Hip Hop exhibition called "EXPO MEMO" organized by my friend Francois Gautret. That exhibition was really surprised me. Its a true Hip Hop Art deal, got really really good quality. It talk about when Hip Hop start in France in 80's.
The interesting thing is, the organizer put my KungFu photo at this exhibition. That photo was took by Bboy Niek when we traveled at incredible holly mountain Mt.Emei in China. Thats why it looks so spiritual. And I met the French painter Jean-Marc Le Jeune. I was watching his works all the time during the meeting. He was also so kind to me & promised to draw me down by some KungFu photos. Big honor to me & I really respect his passion, works & personallity. True artist makes art for life.
