Julien Gaquère, alias Jigé, is a self-taught artist who works at the Jouret workshop in Roubaix. His drawings in multiple shapes and colors are sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract, where characters and strange animals intertwine.
To begin his works, he uses the technique of automatic writing, or “Doodle”, a way for him to let his creativity express itself without thinking about the meaning. During the coloring, his paintings reveals their true nature. The artist also sometimes makes paintings in “negative” that is to say in black and white, where we recognize his incomparable style.
