Jade Fenu is a French contemporary artist with Italian roots. His painting has become abstract, goes beyond the temporal framework, and is interested in nature, in all senses of the word, in transfigured wounds, in recomposed identities. Self-taught, Fenu has developed a gestural technique that perfectly matches his creative process and its multiple stages – discovering, undoing, redoing, sanding, scraping, erasing, etc. With a broad specter of influences, ranging from the contemporary Californian scene, traditional Japanese prints, to German neo-expressionism, the artist has used them all in his training. Jade Fenu currently lives in Aubervilliers and works in Saint-Denis (6B studio), France.
