Jean-Luc Toledo


Area of Operation: France

His work is based on self-portraits...look for identity and dream telling. He uses re-worked photos: photocopied, distorted and drawn again. He transposes them in a silk-screen process and lino-blocking printing and makes them become a work in series. Then the photos are painted with acrylic paint or acrylic ink to develop a graphic and gestured aspect. Working on canvases means collage and constant look for materials and textures. For collage, he uses the silk-screen and lino-block processed photos. Besides canvas painting, he produces "book-and-game objects" with acrylic as a writing tool. The mix of fantastic animals, silk-screen processed characters and multimedia pictures offers a poetic environment that expresses an "inner quest."
