Born in 1989 in Val d’Isere, France, Jisbar is a Paris-based pop artist. His creations are a reflection of a society deeply immersed in pop culture and of a generation rocked by the media. Music is a major inspiration, leading him to develop his style of “street art” which he expresses across diverse canvases. For 10 years, he has been perfecting his art by mixing elements of drawing and painting.
Jisbar captures the nostalgia and easiness of a childhood now over, through colorful visuals; the intensity of color leads spectators to focus on each detail and to in turn discover a whole diversity of universes within. Jisbar likes to say each of his artworks represent “moments in life”, like a memory that we immortalize in a photo album. This nostalgia of a time past and the innocence of his childhood are captured in his paintings, where the power of the color plays an overriding part.
Jisbar is an artist who paints with creative spontaneity. The artist works with urgency to depict with precision the short-stories that animate his daily life, and to illuminate his commentary on contemporary society.
Gallery 444 in San Francisco is proud to be Jisbar’s first gallery outside of Europe.
