Jean Philippe Illanes
Born in 1978 in Drancy and graduated at the Beaux-Art in Paris, Jean-Philippe Illanes developed his artistic production starting from the free representation.
Sometimes working as muralist, sometimes as visual artist, some others as video-maker, Jean Philippe Illanes uses all the medias to express his ideas and his feelings as well as the evidences of his past life.
Eclectic artist, he introduces into his works pop culture roots as well as a playful dimension of art, where the main principle of his artistic research aims to free the shape from the content.
