Jean Pierre FAUVET is a French artist born in Bobigny on April 26, 1970.

He began painting at a very young age and painted his first paintings at the age of twelve, guided by his grandfather who taught him the basic rudiments of painting. Although initially applying himself to abstract work, no examples remain as the artist destroyed them. He then leant towards more figurative, contemporary work. 

In 1992, he held his first joint exhibition, AREXPO, in NARBONNE. His canvas “LES FLEURS DU MAL” appeared on the back cover of the exhibition catalogue.

In 1994, he moved and set up his studio in the Paris region in Drancy and until 2004 organised his personal exhibitions there. The themes he tackled are still significant and dominated by emotions; there are frequent references to the world of photography, religion and all aspects of human relationships.

It was in the same year that he met the Colombian painter Carlos E.VELEZ who followed him in his work and realised a figurative series, mainly in black and white, notably including portraits and nudes on the themes of religion and fashion.

Between 1995 to 2000 colour appeared in his work, at first tentatively and then more meaningfully, offering him a new palette of emotions with still wrenching but more intimate body shapes. It was also during this period that he created his first canvasses on the controversial theme of “LES REGLES” and another series on “LES ARBRES”.

In fact the themes in his work took on a dual quality. Death plays with love: the joys of beach games alongside tortured children and with a UFO “URBAN VEGETAL CITY”, the only abstract influence canvas by the painter in existence.

Through colour Jean-Pierre FAUVET particularly favours line and texture.

Between 2000 and 2005 his work has turned more towards drawing and in 2005 for the first time he was drawn to sculpture with a piece of work entitled “TENSION INTIME”. The same year he launched his web site jp-fauvet.com which brings together all the work that he would like to show the general public.

The beginning of 2006 will see several joint exhibitions in Paris with his presence for the first time at the SALON DES PEINTRES INDEPENDANTS at ESPACE CHAMPERRET. He has also been selected for the heritage weekends at Espace du MARCHE DES BLANCS MANTEAUX, organised by the Ministry of Culture and the 4th arrondissement municipality.
