Biography

Jean Faucheur is a French artist born in 1956.

There is coherence behind the apparent multitude of formal directions in Faucheur’s practice: paintings, photographs, masterpieces he reinterprets, photographs of the Parisian metro covered in graffiti, they all put into question, with great creative generosity, the ambiguity of the image and the ambivalence of the act of “seeing”. Faucheur is never satisfied with a mere exercice in style: he goes beyond the formal, he troubles our representations and faces us with the issue that these representations never reveal themselves for what they really are.

His artistic gesture also involves an analysis: in a century characterized by saturation through image, our resignation in front of these images and overexcitement of our representation systems, his practice is a calm, vigilant and humorous critique of our relationships to the perceived objects and of our paradoxical capacity to let ourselves taken by fascination and/ or repulsion. It reminds us that in this order of representations that is always shifting, what seems obvious is not always so.

Jean Faucheur is a pioneer of street art and is regularly presented as a personality that connects urban and traditional art on the one hand, but also generations of artists on the other. The coherence and the uniqueness of his practice have always been highlighted, confirming the sense of urgency with which Daniel Cresson asks us to realize that “we have in front of our eyes a rich urban painting, full of vitality, for which artists such as Jean Faucheur are essential references.”
