Philippe Jusforgues

One moving day I found a suitcase full of family pictures. Most of them were copies and i could use them without destroying the familial inheritance…

Before that, I use to draw or paint, and the family albums was part of my inspiration, but this time I could use these images directly. I started to change faces and all the images were overwhelming… My characters became real and the range of emotions became larger.

Collage wasn’t part of my culture and that’s why I liked it. I felt more free. I became addict with the rapidity of execution and possibility of surprise. The realism of the photography and the lightness of the drawing mixed together… I consider my images like drawings with flesh and blood. A poetic surgery…

Philippe Jusforgues, nació en Mónaco en 1967, pero en la actualidad vive y trabaja en París; gusta de explorar el retrato a través de distintos medios de comunicación (fotografía, collage, dibujo…) su obra tiene la particularidad de envolvernos en un mundo surreal, donde lo fotografía vintage se entremezcla con la fotografía contemporánea, dando como resultado bizarras imágenes y dibujos donde nada es lo que aparenta ser.

Es bastante entrenido, sobretodo esos corta y pega de caras en cuerpos que le son absolutamente ajenos.
