Completely self-taught, I express my art on all medium, I started with the tag and graffiti in the streets of Paris when I was younger.
My practice is in its essence inspired by emotion, whether in photography, digital, virtual, or in my paintings, I seek to capture a look, for a moment, the expression and especially the emotion of a moment, a fraction of a second, ephemeral and volatile moment so that it becomes eternal. Each painting represents for me the magic of an instant.
Bringing street from home … Made on any mediums, essentially on objects found in the street, everything is salvage.
Mostly wood, oak planks, assembled pallets, hardboard, kitchen board, cardboard, old abandoned canvas, old cupboard doors, slates, sheet metal, to which I give a second life, my technique comes from the spraycan street arts , acrylic paint, oil, watercolor, India ink, markers, dye, charcoal powder, etc…
I’m starting from a base, one of my photos, a drawing, or any other medium, something that inspires me …
My signature is simply my imprint, hence my artist name: L’empreinte Jo. V
Always with the desire to capture a moment of life, and to give emotion in a look …
