Jæn

Bordeaux (33), France
9 works

Jæn combines digital and traditional magic to paint, draw or sculpt hybrids of intimate and collective mythologies, leaving the often psychedelic and pop surrealist works with areas of indeterminacy, which can be freely resonated with one's own imagination. He has extensively explored the lands of creativity: street art, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, music, photography, animation, storytelling and research.

As an artist and illustrator, Jæn strives to create a breach in the rational mind of the viewer, and widen this door to things over which words slide, but not feelings.
