Jean-Michel Folon, a Brussels artist born in 1934 & died in 2005 in Monaco, worked in many mediums & created works in various forms: tapestry, paintings, postage stamps (in 1982, the French post office published two stamps illustrated by the artist), theatre sets, etc.
In the 1960s, he produced his first drawings which propelled him to the forefront of the world art scene. In the United States, renowned publications, such as Horizon, Esquire, and The New Yorker, published his drawings without even having met him. In 1969, he had his first exhibition in New York.
Draftsman, painter, poster artist, sculptor, scenographer, stained-glass designer and director, Folon, a multidisciplinary artist, exhibited his works all over the world in the most prestigious museums, from the United States to France, Japan, Italy, Argentina, Great Britain & beyond. He illustrated the literary works of famous writers and poets, such as Franz Kafka, Ray Bradbury, Boris Vian and Jacques Prévert, and created large scale wall murals, notably in Milan, Rome and London. His work speaks to a world of anonymous people, lost in a world of concrete & post modern society that remains relevant today.
