BIOGRAPHY OF THE ARTIST
Jisbar is inspired by diverse urban art forms, such as fashion, music, pop culture and even the skateboard world. Ode to an era gone and a taste for nostalgia, his artworks crystallize moments from the past. He instinctively and spontaneously paints to express himself.
Parisian artist, Jisbar declines with irony the subjects and references of pop-culture. Inspired by the elements that surround him, the artist likes to represent “moments of life”.
Ode to a former era with a taste for nostalgia, his works crystallize an unspeakable force. Such strength is generated by an instinctive gesture to extract the essence of creative spontaneity and a liberated society. Through a myriad of colors, he represents a punk spirit and pictorial freedom. The French artist comments with irony the references of pop culture. Through his prism, modern society interferes in his paintings and changes its pictural connotation.
Jisbar, an internationally recognized artist, is increasing his exhibitions in France, the United States, Italy, Asia and Sweden. The artist endeavors to create an in situ relationship of concordance between the place of the exhibition, the architecture and the public.
Jisbar was asked to participate in the “Addenda” exhibition which highlighted the fight against racism and antisemitism through art. The exhibition took place inside the National Museum for the History of Immigration in Paris. For this event, Jisbar covered far-right propaganda posters with a fresco portraying love and international unity. On top of a gigantic heart tag filled with the word “LOVE” painted over and over again like a mantra, he reinterpreted the famous depiction of The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo to convey the power of people coming together. The opening was also an opportunity for Jisbar to present his piece to the then French President in power François Hollande who inaugurated the exhibition.
After a first exhibition in 2017 inside the JM Weston store located on the prestigious rue Saint Honoré, Jisbar and the luxury French master shoemaker worked together again on another artistic project. This time, the collaboration took place inside the brand’s flagship store on the Champs Élysées. Jisbar created art works exclusive to the event and also customized by hand a few pairs of the brand’s iconic models. The event was a successful mix of French craftsmanship and pop art and attracted hundreds of queuing people for several hours. It was a unique occasion for customers and art lovers to admire and purchase one-of-a-kind items.
A few months after his first exhibition in Asia entitled “Jisbar’s Playground” which took place in Bangkok, Jisbar comes back to land in Singapore at the Miaja Gallery for the Voilah! France Singapore Festival 2019.
Musée Le Carton voyageur, Baud – FRANCE
In 2020, alongside artists like Richard Orlsinki, Paul Toupet and Alexandre Nicolas, he joins the exhibition called Pop or not pop? of the Le Carton Voyageur museum. The ephemeral exhibition aims to question the icons of pop culture, by confronting them with the artworks of four artists who have reinterpreted them. Jisbar has specially created for the occasion a canvas representing Mona Lisa appearing to make a peace sign with her right hand, while posing in front of a portrait of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol.
