Jean-Louis Toutain

France Born in: 1948

Jean-Louis Toutain was a French sculptor, born in Toulouse in 1948.

Since his childhood, Jean-Louis Toutain wanted to be in touch with the material and rethink the world.

After Beaux-Arts Jean-Louis turned towards several artistic practices but didn't find his true calling. It was only in 1987, he decided to devote himself to sculpture exclusively.

He was inspired by well known artists like Niki de Saint-Phalle and Fernando Botero.

Jean-Louis employs simple patterns so that he can reach out to a wide number of people. Far from being pretentious, his creations are his own reflection, humble and easily accessible by children and adults.

Jean-Louis Toutain's work has been presented in several solo and group exhibitions, in various French art galleries. The artist was awarded many times during his long career. Jean-Louis Toutain died in 2008.
