About the Artist:
Jeanchoir, specialized in the exploration of mythological and horrific universes, offers different drawing techniques (detailed graphite and ink technique, painting, 3D model, etc …)
In particular, he seeks to convey to his work an eulogy to medieval tales advocating the notions of « l’amour courtois » and a tribute to the sacred feminine, by integrating more moderne references both graphically and in his themes, sometimes mixing various mythological references with tales previously cited as well certain science-fiction works or certain approaches related to the new-age movement.
