Born in 1989 in Val d’Isere, France, Jisbar, now based in Amsterdam, has been producing art that pushes boundaries in pop culture with both innovation and mischievous irony. He is best known for his reinterpretation of classical and historical paintings. Through his creations, Jisbar invites us to rediscover the most renowned works of art, by mixing them with codes of pop culture and amalgamating them with modernity, thereby making them relatable to those who have not considered them before.

Each piece is more than a homage. They have been enriched with words, sentences, numbers, and drawings that create a new story to decrypt, imploring the audience to focus on each detail in order to discover myriad connections with each new perspective taken. Many of his works use elements of classical surrealism, from Picasso to Dali, which he manipulates with intricacy so as to blend in with the narrative of a modern world.

For Jisbar, each of his works represents “moments of life”, like a memory that is immortalized in a tangible form. This nostalgia for a past era coupled with the purity of childhood is embedded into his paintings, where the power of colour plays a foundational role. This vibrant integrity provokes the viewer to pull out relational components of the subject and reassemble within, creating their own bespoke, personal message. Jisbar is an artist who paints with haste and spontaneity. He strives to externalize his internal creative drives through his impulsivity that can only be described as authentic and true in a given moment.

In 2019, Jisbar was the first artist to exhibit a painting into the outer space in orbit around Earth.
