Born of the Skateboard culture, Jean-Philippe, born January 14, 1981 in Montreal, lives in the Eastern Townships. Like many artists of his generation, using aerosol cans and a pseudonym (Spank Boo) he made his first graffiti on bridges, walls of factories and schools. A few years later, his first paintings are inspired by an imaginary and futuristic world, then by the realism of humans and the marine world.
The discovery of airbrushing, training, research and testing will allow him to develop expertise and processes so that his illustrations stand the test of time, be it on plastics, metals, textiles and other materials.
In a professional way he creates his first creations for a snowboard manufacturer. For the past 15 years, he has painted his illustrations on theme park components in more than 35 countries, on automobiles exhibited at the Auto Show, at Formula 1 Grand Prix, on motorcycles, bicycles, boats, circus clothing and accessories, inflatable structures, etc.
His passion for art also brought him to 3D animation, digital painting and, of course, canvas painting. His paintings are little known to the general public and the world of galleries. The few works produced annually are usually ordered or purchased by insiders.
