French artists

Jean-Baptiste Dumont is a French painter born in 1975. He works and lives in Calais.

This is what the artist says of himself:

"I am self-taught and I search tirelessly through my subjects the essence of human nature.

The faces, the bodies that I paint, that I carve, are only made of feelings and resentment, I caressed them, I mistreat them, I work on them... almost to the point of suffocation.

And it is in this silence that my works speak, are indulging in conversations without end. A face to face talk during which the spectator cannot remain indifferent to these serious, tormented expressions, and at the same time serene, humble ... and then fragile.

My work either seduces, or it disturbs?
