"I originally painted this piece at the end of 2013 for a 2-person show
with one of my dearest friends and favorite artists Martin Wittfooth.
The piece was created for a collaborative show with my buddy Martin
Wittfooth, De Anima. The paintings in that show were dealing with mostly
animal subjects, the notion of Soul, granted or denied and the
forgotten and disregarded sense of a sacred unity with all things. Most
of the pieces in the show were created as a dialogue between Martin and
I." - Turf OneABOUT THE ARTIST:Turf One
is somewhat obsessed with Victorian-looking midgets sporting dandy
facial hair, Russian icons, dead things of all sorts, carnival sideshows
and seedy vermin-infested theatre stages. Technically, his paintings
are reminiscent of the 15th century Flemish Primitives.
Jean Labourdette, as his mom still likes to call him, has forged a
unique artistic vision and signature aesthetic over years of compulsive
creation. In the late eighties he began his journey on the streets of
Paris as a graffiti artist renowned for his distinctive and surreal
characters. Over the years, Jean evolved into a prolific and
sought-after multidisciplinary artist working as an illustrator, comic
artist, filmmaker and painter. Today, he spends most of his time
painting in a messy studio that Bacon would have been proud of, sipping
on espressos and wine and talking to himself.
Turf One’s work has appeared the world over and has hung in such
prestigious venues as Yves Laroche Gallery (Montreal), Jonathan LeVine
Gallery (New York), Roq La Rue Gallery (Seattle), Fuse Gallery (New
York), the Halle St-Pierre Museum (Paris), Copro Gallery (Los Angeles),
the Miami Art Basel, the L.A MOCA, the LA Art Show and many others.Find more from Turf One at jeanlaboudette.comFollow Jon on Instagram @jeanlabourdette - Twitter @jeanlabourdette & Facebook
