JEHAN at Sophie Vandré Gallery
The exhibition of the recently founded GALLERY SOPHIE VANDRÉ shows a collection of expressive oil paintings that were created over the past years by the Berlin-based artist JEHAN. His paintings show the vulnerability of the creature to the point of disaster. He paints to reflect on what he has seen, on what he has experienced. In this sense, his paintings are reminiscences. Painting for JEHAN always means “to paint anew” – in his own way, powerful, sometimes unpleasant, straddling the line between abstraction and representation. JEHAN’s paintings are designed in bright colours, using impasto. Spaces become pure surfaces, without the illusion of light and shadow. Instead, there is a space shaped by sensations and imagination.
JEHAN lives in Berlin and Katwijk aan Zee. He works as a freelance layout artist. Inspired by classical modernism, JEHAN is a self-taught artist.
GALLERY SOPHIE VANDRÉ was founded in Munich in 2021 to promote young talents in particular in the field of art and design. With the exhibition of JEHAN’s works, the gallery makes its exhibition debut in Berlin.
