Jérôme Mesnager

France
Famous artist
  • 10 works

Son of an engineer, Jérôme Mesnager studied at the Fénelon Sainte-Marie high school before entering the Boulle school in 1974 where he trained as a cabinetmaker and where he later taught. In 1979, he attended the comic strip classes of Yves Got and Georges Pichard, teachers at the Duperré School of Applied Arts.

In August 1981 in Avignon, he met Gérard Zlotykamien and assisted him in an artistic intervention in the Célestins church. This meeting will be decisive for the continuation of his career.

In 1982, he was one of the founders of Zig-Zag, a group of ten very young artists who decided to occupy the street by drawing graffiti and also to briefly occupy disused factories during an artistic performance.

On January 16, 1983, he invented the Man in White, "a symbol of light, strength and peace. This white silhouette, also known as the "White Body" or "White Man", has been reproduced by Jérôme Mesnager all over the world, from the walls of Paris to the Wall of China. "I make paintings and the canvas is the world," he says.
