Jacques Villeglé


Jacques Villeglé is a painter and visual artist born in Quimper in 1926. For 60 years, Jacques Villeglé has continued his quest for urban waste, in the streets of Paris, in Brittany, in the South of France to Buenos Aires.

A member of the new realism group alongside Klein, Cesar, Hains, Arman, this artist abandons the imagination of the abstract expressionist to plunge you into a contemporary world.

Jacques Villeglé denounces consumer society, chain production, factories. He plays with the signs in the same way that lacerated posters tell the story ("The lacerated poster is not an object of consumption, it is something quite different. she has a story ")
