Jean André

Mauvaise Réputation – Berlin

August 2nd - August 31st, 2015

Jean André’s “gentleman art” balances saucy and minimalistic representations of women, creating images that read as both gentlemen’s pulp illustration and satirical tableaux. His influences range from Matisse to Gainsbourg to Drake as well as erotic magazines from the 80’s.

For Mauvaise Réputation, Jean partners with Paris based tattoo artist Tarik aka The Crayoner. The exhibition is inspired by old tattoos made as tributes for beloved women and ‘mauvais garçons’ inked drawings.

Friday July 31st and Saturday August 1st will be dedicated exclusively to tattoo sessions with The Crayoner & Jean André at HVW8 Gallery Berlin.

Tattoos by appointment only – to book please contact:

The exhibition opens Sunday August 2nd,   1 – 6pm with an outdoor barbecue at HVW8 Gallery Berlin with San Miguel Beer. A limited number of hand-drawn black carbon on recycled paper posters and printed cards will be available for sale.  Exhibition runs through August 31st.
