Luca Curci
talks with Journou during VISIONS, third appointment of ANIMA MUNDI 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.

Contemporary painter, Arnaud JOURNOU was born in 1981 in Brittany to a family open to the world, itself from Italy and Poland. JOURNOU has been attracted to graphic art since his early childhood. As a young draftsman, at the age of 14, he met Bernard-Marie LAUTE, a painter, photographer, and filmmaker with a passion for modern painting. Thirsty for advice, he will then spend several days in his studio by his side. His influence will encourage him to persist. He quickly finds his universe, that of POP ART, on the border of Street Art and press cartoons, feeding on popular culture. His creations are conceived as homages to life and also to feminity, carnal and sensual.

In 2018, he met with success thanks to his collaboration with Christophe PETYT, the manager of the JACKSON family. Exhibiting his colorful canvases in major galleries in Brussels, Paris, Dubaï and New York, JOURNOU also exercises his art in the customization of various products in the field of luxury, haute couture, or even sculptures. He signs artistic collaborations with prestigious brands such as PRIVATE HAUTE COUTURE, BMW, NODIE’S, and EVENTS FAMILY. Several French celebrities call on JOURNOU for a creation. Painting is for him a means of expression and sharing. Whether his works are tasted, criticized or provocative, his art must be in motion and in effervescence
