Jean-Marc Hunt

Neo-Expressionism

December 10, 2020

Jean-Marc Hunt is a French Caribbean contemporary artist working in various fields, including drawing, painting, installation, and sculpture. Born in Strasbourg, he grew up in the suburbs, coming into contact with graffiti and rap music. In 2003, Hunt settled in Guadeloupe and began creating in a neo-expressionistic style. His work, often based on the economy of means, evokes a state of emergency with hints of irony. Besides painting and drawing, he likes to venture out into monumental installation and sculpture projects. He has also distinguished himself in exhibition curating and scenography. In 2019, Jean-Marc Hunt represented Guadeloupe at the 58th Venice Biennale with the collective exhibition Personal Structures at the Palazzo Mora, curated by Marcy Gaymu.
