The artist

Jérôme Mesnager is a French street artist and painter born in 1961. After training as a cabinetmaker at École Boulle, he took comic strip lessons at the Ecole supérieure des arts appliqués Duperré. It was in 1982 that he began to draw in the streets, with the group of very young artists he brought together, Zig-Zag. And in 1983, the artist created a white silhouette that he would reproduce around the world: the Man in White, “a symbol of light, strength and peace”.

In 1986, La galerie Loft presented one of his first exhibitions with white bodies. The gallery and the artist continued in 1988 with an exhibition entitled "Passage" then in 1989 with the exhibition of paintings made with pieces from the Bercy warehouses. The Loft gallery devotes a retrospective around his work in 1993. At the same time, many editions of catalogs have appeared over the years, such as that for the exhibition "Passage" or "Combat" in 1990.
