Jean-Paul Chambas

Back to 80's Archive

The virtuoso draftsman Jean-Paul Chambas, born in 1947, also collaborates on books and films, and is a scenic designer for theater and opera. During the 1980s he often produced lithographs at the print shop, and studied techniques used by Toulouse-Lautrec in stone lithography, especially his spraying of tiny dots, which he appropriated for his expressive portraits.
