Thomas Jeunet, born amidst the volcanic landscapes of Auvergne, is a self-taught painter whose passion for colors and their interplay in abstract forms narrates unique and singular stories. Driven by a philosophy that painting allows for the freedom to think, create, and share, Jeunet draws inspiration from Abstraction and the extensive travels and experiences he has encountered since his youth. His artistic creations are a medium through which he expresses his apprehension of the world, imbued with emotions and sensations.

Jeunet's works transport viewers into a sensitive universe where a fascination for creation and a love of painting converge, art having become a vital therapeutic outlet in his personal life. Since 2012, while concurrently pursuing a career in the luxury goods industry, Jeunet has devoted himself to art, using it to materialize the creative bubbling within him. This unique intersection of art and luxury has cultivated a distinct aesthetic in his work, where landscapes, cultures, and encounters vividly permeate each canvas, weaving a visual story marked by both sophistication and raw creativity.

For years, Jeunet has captured what he sees and feels, archiving his memories as if on photographic film. These mental images gradually transform into ideas and interpretations that he transcribes onto canvas through an exploration of color, its nuances, and various hues. Different intentions and layers of matter within his works create multiple narratives, interlocking like frames within frames, inviting viewers into stories that unfold across the canvas akin to the chapters of a novel, the sections of a newspaper, or the panels of a comic strip.

Continuously transforming his inner and outer explorations into a grand artistic adventure, Jeunet sees the world as his canvas and each destination as an endless source of inspiration. He also paints to the rhythm of the seasons, capturing the essence and atmosphere of each moment.
