Jacques Ristorcelli (alias Risto) studied at the École nationale des beaux-arts de Bourges. He lives and works in Aix-en-Provence.
Among the pioneers of artistic video in the early 1980s, he collaborated for a while on Cahiers du cinéma, then turned to illustration, in parallel with multimedia production.
A faithful heir to pop art, the Bazooka group, and a track companion of American artists such as Raymond Pettibon, Robert Longo and Richard Prince, Ristorcelli draws only from existing images taken from comic books, pulp magazines, prints, popular images and personal photographs. He takes the images, cuts them up, reframes them, molests them, redraws details, assembles them by collage, repeats them...
With these foreign, often stereotypical, impersonal images, Ristorcelli thus orchestrates a kind of inner theatre that is in turn refined, grotesque, romantic and violent. His blog is significantly entitled "Electric Paper Theatre", in reference to aukamishibai (literally "paper theatre"), the modest art of Japanese street storytellers, and the nickname that television sets in Japan received when they appeared: "electric kamishibai".
