In 2018, Jean was commissioned to create a floor to ceiling wall mural for the restaurant in Geneva, Switzerland. After his first two trips to start work on the project, the first stage of the mural is complete.The faces might look familiar to you. That’s because it’s the recreation of a scene from the 2016 film, Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard
Jean explains the creative vision behind the mural: “I decided to paint recreations of famous movie scenes to illustrate the different stages of attraction and romance. In this first scene, the characters have just met; in the next scene the characters will be closer to one another, by the third they will be holding hands and the fourth and final painting will be the kiss that seals the romance.“I am constructing the paintings so that it seems as if each of these figures is sat in the restaurant with the customers.”.
We can’t wait to see the next stages of the mural and find out which famous names and film scene he’ll be painting next!
