  Mini Interview with JEAN LABOURDETTE: Your childhood ambition: After wanting to be a secret agent, then an actor, I decided at a very young age that I’d be an artist. Something you treasure: What I treasure most in the world is my son Théo. Your worst habit: Not sure whether to call it a habit, an obsession or compulsion, but it probably is my ever-present obsession to detail. The aspect of your work that’s most important to you: The creative process: the moments when inspiration strikes and images arise on their own from my subconscious. Your first job: Painting murals and storefronts in Paris since age 14. Someone whose work you highly recommend: Martin Wittfooth.     View Jean’s artwork here.
