“Jennyfer Grassi is a free spirit. Entirely committed to her painting, working in a sensitive and intuitive way, she sets off on a pictorial voyage. Her paintings always start off in the same way. Firstly, with a patch of colour upon a white canvas. Then, gradually, comes a sense of balance, a feeling of unity and shades rubbing shoulders. It’s painting as music, only with vibrations made of colour, not sound; combining, echoing, creating a larger pattern.
Jennyfer Grassi’s paintings demonstrate two distinct approaches: that of the onlooker: uncomplicated, unworried, a silent witness of the power exerted by nature over humanity, where the artist’s wanderings are driven by a sense of physical urgency translated into the painter’s every gesture, and of the looming future. Secondly, that of the poet, imbuing these great floral expanses with a misleading air of innocence. No sooner has the key to the mystery seemingly been found, than a veil descends again and the frantic search for the solution to the riddle starts over once again.”

Jennyfer Grassi, a French artist, graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 2007, she produced a series of paintings with the subject of exuberant and menacing nature, such as jungles, divers, tornadoes and hurricanes.
She exhibited for the first time her works in 2011 at the Salon de Montrouge, directed by Gael Charbau, followed by some group exhibitions, including the Tree of Life, at the Collège des Bernardins in 2013. In 2014, she was nominated as one of the 12 artists at the ““Bourse Révélations Emerige” initiated by the collector and patron Laurent Dumas to support emerging Artists who work in France.
In summer of 2017, her work is switched in depth, with the birth of new paintings full of bright and colorful flowers. In early 2018, she participated in the group exhibition “Journey to the Center of the Earth” curated by Jérôme Sans in Paris with a great success.
