I love his vibrant colors and bold, gestural brushstrokes!
Jules de Balincourt was born in 1972 in Paris and moved to the United States with his family in the early 1980s. He lives and works in Brooklyn (NY). De Balincourt’s painting can be interpreted on several different levels.
The image is always an encounter and an invitation to escape, going from pure utopia to dystopia.
De Balincourt moves through space, zooming in on details that attract his attention, as what he himself calls
“a tourist of globalisation who consumes culture visually and intellectually and conveys or disseminates his personal visions by means of images.”
He frequently uses stencils, tape, and spray paint in the creation of his work, too!
