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.
