Jean Faucheur is a French photographer who takes ordinary portraits and then distorts them to fragments. Parts of the images are missing or have moved. His images question the idea of photographs showing realistic scenes and something from a single view. He takes images from different perspectives and distances and puts them together in one picture by dissecting the pictures and rearranging them in interesting compositions. Faucheur is considered a prominent figure of urban art thanks to his talent as a pioneer, taste for rupture, and acute sense of sharing.
This innovator dedicated himself to sculpting, painting and photography. He explores all techniques, all types of stands and spaces, mixes and manipulates materials to produce works of all shapes and sizes. This explorer of the arts remains a paradoxical figure embodying the link between the pioneers and the emerging stars in urban art.
