Christophe Jehan is an unclassifiable artist, whose paintings and sculptures portray an immensely joyful world. His colourful psyche leads us into an imaginary universe filled with larger-than-life characters. A Christophe Jehan painting in your home is the promise of a ray of sunshine every day.


Christophe Jehan and the sea

After studying in Paris and graduating in 1992, Christophe Jehan worked first as an architect. A great sea lover, he decided to settle in the Caribbean island. He devotes himself to painting in his spare time in this paradisiacal world of shimmering colors.
Homesickness brought him back home. He settled in St Jean de Luz, in the south-west of France and decided to dedicate himself entirely to his art and set up his studio in a small fisherman’s house.

There, painting and color captured his heart. In the beginning, the sea was his primary source of inspiration. Then, he quickly started to imagine his universe, an imaginary world where candid characters and naive animals are an entertaining mix. On acrylic and metal canvases, he depicts life scenes and a mischievous bestiary that reveals a real gift for color and texture.

Christophe Jehan’s style

Christophe Jehan exhibited first in Saint Jean de Luz where he attracted a large public. Then he exhibited in Biarritz, Cap Ferret, and Paris.
Later he participates in major contemporary art fairs, in particular in Brussels and Paris.
Since 1999, his work is in the permanent collection of the Estade Gallery and is displayed in the four locations of the Gallery, in Paris, Lyon, Toulon, and Baden-Baden.

Christophe Jehan’s success was apparent early. In 2013 he was ranked among the 100 top artists in France’s auction houses. His bright and irresistibly cheerful color palette creates a style that places him among the “free figuration” painters.
