Jean-Philippe DELHOMME

Jean-Philippe Delhomme started his career as an illustrater. He has been painting for many years, but kept this side of his work private until his first exhibition in New York in 2015. He paints scenes devoid of any human presence, based on direct observation of the urban landscapes of the big city, whether New York, Paris, or Los Angeles. His way of looking at these cities bears witness to the coalescence of the past, present and future manifested in the architectural fabric of an environment in constant transformation. He is drawn to industrial sites, threatened with demolition, soon to make way for new residential buildings, and his 'vistas' are charged with literary and artistic references. Delhomme's landscapes are not just painted, but authored; the thread between his different forms of expression: drawing, writing and painting.
