Jean-Baptiste Launay, better known as Jisbar, is a French pop-street artist born in 1989. He lives and works between Paris and Lisboa.
Jisbar is famous worldwide for being the first ever artist to reinterpret classical art masterpiece figures (such as Mona Lisa, Frida Kahlo, Klimt or Warhol) with his personal style of pop and street art. This striking blend of influences shaped a clear and unique identity that inspires a lot of artists and brands across the world today. Each artwork surpasses the idea of a simple remake as it is enriched with words, slogans, numbers and codes that help create a new story to decrypt. It challenges every person who looks at it to find their own clues by focusing on every single detail. The abundant signs generate new angles inside which the spectator finds new elements and interpretations every time they look at the painting.
