"STOP TAKING YOURSELF SERIOUSLY AND DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME IN BEING NEGATIVE. EVERY DAY I MAKE A DREAM, MORE OR LESS CRAZY, COME TRUE; BUT I CREATE SOMETHING I DREAM OF. I GO AHEAD AND I’M VERY POSITIVE." (JISBAR)
Born in 1989 in Val d’Isere, France, Jisbar is a Paris-based pop artist. His creations are a reflection of a society deeply immersed in pop culture and of a generation rocked by the media. Music is a major inspiration, leading him to develop his style of “street art” which he expresses across diverse canvases. For 10 years, he has been perfecting his art by mixing elements of drawing and painting.
Jisbar captures the nostalgia and easiness of childhood through colorful visuals; the intensity of color leads spectators to focus on each detail and to in turn discover a whole diversity of universes within. Jisbar likes to say each of his artworks represent “moments in life”, like a memory that we immortalize in a photo album. This nostalgia of a time past and the innocence of his childhood are captured in his paintings, where the power of the color plays an overriding part.
Jisbar is an artist who paints with creative spontaneity. He works with urgency to depict the short-stories that animate his daily life, and to illuminate his commentary on contemporary society.
