It was during his adolescence that Jeanjerome tried the art of tag, graffiti and sculpture. His references are those of urban culture and hip hop. The discovery of the book "Spraycan Art" and its meeting with professors Patricia & Philippe Legendre-Kvater who integrate him at the Etampes Art School are the triggers of his approach. He studies among others their technique of "drawing by the game". Then, he begins the marble work. During his artistic research, he experimented with jewelery at the studio of goldsmith to Bastille, Paris. Jeanjerome expresses himself through urban sport by skating and Longboard. He is one of the founders of the Friday roller blading in Paris. In 2004, he resumed his initiation to jewelery with Ossip Frolov in Copenhagen while remaining connected to urban culture. But above all, he resumes his technical and artistic research. He discovered himself through oil painting and sold his first paintings. Back in France in 2008, he found a studio to test the large format that he adopted later. At the same time, he gives street art lessons to children for the city of Paris. He participates in group exhibitions by diversifying both the media and the pictorial medium. His starting point? Street Art, of course, but also Art Nouveau. He appreciates the curves, the colorful audacity, the decorative aspect. Jeanjerome approaches his canvas by starting a long work of goldsmith. The canvas completed, the artist reveals a sense of composition, the balance of colors and lines. It is also in this perspective that JeanJérôme likes to share his art of live performance. This will with which he marks the urban space of his borrowing joins here the concept of Art Nouveau: any medium makes sense when it introduces into our daily lives the possibility of art. Jeanjerome's universe is composed of applied, juxtaposed frank colors, in a voluble geometry all curves that makes sense. There is always some figurative behind his apparent abstraction.
