David Jamin

Born to a father whose passion was drawing and a mother who had always painted, David fell in love with drawing at an early age. He studied fine arts before deciding to develop his art with a completely free spirit.
He explored various areas and formed his style over time. The artist incorporates several techniques in oil and uses various tools to express a range of emotions, everything from charcoal to oil, revisiting watercolor or pastel on a whim. His technique is essential to him and constantly evolving. It is used only to express the power of emotions, which remain his inspiration, what he wishes to represent in his work.
Through the many themes he has dealt with so far, the human being ‘in all its complexity’ figures prominently. David gives a face to the sensitive side of man, and introduces the public to "the Introportrait" that touches on the intimate side of humans. A mix of introspection and self-portrait, the ‘Introportrait’ is, in essence, a self-portrait of the soul.
The characters in his paintings are dancers, musicians, bystanders and dandies. David sets his subjects in the city, lively places where he observes the crowds looking for any tiny detail. A flaw in the scene shows the touching side of a human being. Colored faces, casual postures, deeply human natures: these characters are a reflection of ourselves.
David does not sketch very much; it is the intangible that feeds his painting. He absorbs sounds, smells, atmosphere and light. He draws some outlines with charcoal and then throws his ideas down on the canvas with loose but precise movements. This gesture, almost a dance, gives life to his characters.
Free-spirited, David plays on the heartstrings of emotions. He lives his painting as he lives his life, with passion, enthusiasm and determination!
