Jisbar (b.1989) is a French artist who lives and works in Paris, and whose work has been presented in major cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Bangkok, Paris, Venice, and the Gold Coast in Australia. From collaborations with major brands such as JM Weston, Armani and BMW, to showcases at renowned museums such as the Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi and the National Museum of History of Immigration in Paris, Jisbar is one of the most prominent figures of his generation in the world of pop-street art.
Drawing from a vibrant pastiche of high and low cultural references, Jisbar’s art is at once a brilliant representation of, and a tongue-in-cheek resistance against, the flamboyant excess of consumerist culture. Hyper-saturated in every sense of the word, his paintings evoke the frenzied and effervescent qualities of 21st century life. Each work is not only an homage, but also a bricolage of words, sentences, and numbers that viewers can decrypt. Letting viewers discover new elements at every glance, these pieces are always in the process of perpetually regenerating themselves. Jisbar likes to say that each of his works represent “moments of life”, like a memory that would be printed forever in a photo album.
