Jean-Pierre Bru’s attention is naturally drawn to architectural heritage and, more generally, the representation of humankind in a manufactured environment. As a child of the 60s, Pop Art, new figuration and new realism have all influenced his pictorial practice.
Jean-Pierre Bru began drawing and painting at a very young age, at the instigation of his father, an amateur painter. Then, in a professional setting, he reproduced numerous architectural projects, which also strongly influenced his pictorial practice.
He began his artistic practice with watercolour, before tackling acrylic, which became his preferred medium. From 2010, he began exhibition at a local, regional and national level, notably taking part in the Salon National des Beaux-Arts in 2015 and 2016 and the Salon d’Automne 2017 in Paris.
Immortalising man’s creations
Jean-Pierre Bru’s artistic practice is constantly evolving. His colourful and structured perspective on the world allows us to escape to his unique urban landscapes.
He also draws inspiration from the works of Jacques Monory and Gérard Fromanger, as well as the world of graphic novels, through Hugo Pratt, Moebius and, more recently, Enki Bilal. Working as an art editor for over ten years has led him to work with a number of artists, including Mengelatte, Cénac, Castell, Schmidt and Blend.
