Jean Michel Lengrand
About the artist
His grandfather was a painter and as a child, Jean-Michel Lengrand (born in 1955), who was born in Paris, knew he wanted to follow in his footsteps. The artist does not opt for aesthetic art, but wants Art as an expression of the metaphysical, and calls himself an 'alchemist'. The performances are 'realistic', sometimes inclined towards surrealism and/or magical realism. Based on philosophy and theology, the paintings contain many 'archetypal' symbolism and often depict themes from Greek myths and motifs from the Old Testament.
