Jean Luc DESSET
Jean-Luc Desset is a French painter, born in 1974.
His unique childhood in the 70's and 80's with cartoons and Manga are his main inspiration.
Jean-Luc Desset has such beautiful and precious memories from his childhood, that he has developed what one calls the Peter Pan syndrome. He doesn't want to grow up and neither does he want to see his environment evolve.
He wants to freeze his childhood characters and Desset manages to do so on his canvas, making them immortal. Each one of his bright colored paintings is a fragment of his youth and the artist remains attached to them.
Even though Jean-Luc Desset is well aware that time can't stand still, painting is a good remedy against his fear.
