Jéko

Painter
Drawer
FranceBorn in : 1994Emerging artistEmerging artist

It was not Jéko who came to painting, but painting that came to him.

Jéko has always had his hands in pencils. He innocently scribbled on pieces of paper without any specific purpose or aesthetic. One day, after passing his baccalaureate, Jéko could not give up his activity and his mother gave him his first canvas, a pot of blue paint and a black felt pen. A gesture with no specific goal, simply a support to encourage her son to continue his creativity.

Today, it has not failed, Jéko's work is full of imagination and productivity. This great creativity goes back to his early childhood, when he was confronted with all the graffiti along the roads and his own street. All these urban decors fascinated him to such an extent that today he continues to admire them in the street.

Facing the medium, brush in hand, Jéko lets it express itself for him. Contrary to the time when painters had a master, Jéko did not follow any training, did not go to art school, but nevertheless, he shows great mastery and knows how to express his emotions and thoughts on paper or canvas.

"What touches me the most and what appeals to me first are the colours and shapes" Jéko

In his studio based in the suburbs of Paris, Jéko paints what comes to his mind, quite simply. It must be seen as an impulse, a desire, a thought that is transcribed in his painting. If one word could define his style, it would be: Spontaneity.

Following his instinct, letting his mind express itself, this is Jéko's motto and this is how he produces his works. So it is not surprising that the artist works on several works at the same time. Some of them are finished in one day. Others are officially finished after several months.

"What counts for me is the passion of the moment, the oblivion and the moment" Jéko
