Jean-Pierre Villafane's work derives from a direct engagement with the urban environment to physicalize its events, map interactions and record movement. Jean-Pierre deploys recollected gestures, colors and motion related to the urban space and layers textural narratives to map the emotional territory and reveal fragments of memory. His work is a manifestation of freedom as a celebration of the act of creation. Jean-Pierre’s inventive approach encompasses murals, paintings, sculptures, photography, works on paper, as well as collaborative projects and videos. Composed with a loose attitude to the physical qualities of his chosen medium, charged, interacting arrangements of form and color are at once subtractive and additive. Sailing arm and body fluidly across the surface, he records a desire to be taken by surprise and arrive at a kind of image that would not be predictable.
