Jaeraymie started street art in November 2016. He made a name for himself with his past posters of election posters during the 2017 presidential elections, then became known with his series "Romanticism is a man's thing" . After a long stay in the United States for the project "Excuse my fresque", in Paris, he responded to the request of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in France to make a wall on the Champs de Mars on the occasion of the commemorations of 1918-1968 for which he accompanied his visual with a quote from Kundera. In 2019, he produced an 11-meter-long fresco for Women's Day in order to raise awareness of street harassment, a wall spontaneously legalized a posteriori by the mayor of the 11th arrondissement of Paris. "The idiomatic expressions" is his second large-scale series after "Romanticism is a trick of men": he stuck in all thirty real-size drawings in Indian ink, half in the streets of Paris, to half in the provinces. This artistic approach is retraced in an eponymous book. Oscillating between lightness and gravity in the subjects he tackles, Jaëraymie is never aggressive or peremptory. His works bring, for many of them, a singular, biased, ironic and paradoxical look at our society.
