PARIS | JEAN-PHILIPPE DELHOMME STUDIO VISIT
As one of the most celebrated illustrators in Paris, a painter and illustrator,
Delhomme uses the paintbrush to express his thoughts, humour and visual memory.
Described as a “chronicler of culture”, his view of the world – in addition to his attitude to life – is positive and wide-eyed.
Certain elements of his captured subjects can only be seen in his illustrations and their use of colour, stroke and refined execution.
Champ featured Jean-Philippe’s work in Champ Issue 8, a double page of Prada Fall/Winter 2014 designs.
Regularly contributing to GQ to being featured in Purple Magazine, and until recently since the beginning of 2015, has published a weekly story in Zeit Magazin, “Pariser Tagerbuch” ( Paris Diary).
Not only this, Delhomme has had numerous books published to this date: The Unknown Hipster Diaries (August Editions), The Cultivated Life (Rizzoli), Design Addicts (Thames & Hudson), Scènes de la vie Parentale (Denoël), La Chose Littéraire (Denoël), Art Contemporain (Denoël) and Le Drame de la Déco (Denoël). Additionally, he has illustrated Glenn O’Brien’s How to Be A Man (Rizzoli).
With an extensive client list, Delhomme has worked in the worlds of fashion, art and architecture. Never limiting himself, he has been commissioned by Louis Vuitton, Maison Kitsune, Suntory, Barneys New York – amongst many others.
Delhomme has currently completed a book of Le Corbusier’s designs, illustrated in only the way Delhomme can.
Coming up this month, Jean-Philippe prepares for his show opening on April 9th at Galerie Martine Gossieaux.
With a special limited edition book published by the galerie on this occasion, it’s not to miss.
