Jacques Villeglé

France Born in: 1926 Bestsellers Masterpieces

Jacques Villeglé, (Jacques Mahé de la Villegle) was born in Quimper on March 27, 1926. He is a French painter and visual artist and a founding member of the New Realists. He is considered to be the most prominent affichiste.

In the early '50s, Villeglé calls himself an "affichiste" and starts talking about the “guerrilla of signs". He keeps "the journal of the street world ". He collects, keeps track and shows his ripped posters, a "reflection of the dominant culture". He wants to create a popular body of work and provide a trace of the life of an era (its political, social and cultural context).

From December 1949, with artist Raymond Hains, Villeglé collects pieces of posters, and their first poster, "Ach Alma Manétro", is a joint work. The selective work of the artist has been shown in more than 140 personal exhibitions in Europe and America since 1957. In 1958, Villeglé writes a piece about lacerated posters entitled "Collective Realities". It is the prefiguration of the New Realism manifesto. In 1959 he creates Lacéré anonyme. Staring in 1969, he imagines a "socio-political alphabet" as a tribute to Serge Tchakhotine.

In 2007, the artist starts making sculptures using traditional techniques (bronze, glass) as well as industrial techniques (Corten steel, polished stainless steel, cast iron).
