Jana & Js


For more than ten years, Jana and Jean-Sébastien Philippe have been collaborating on work both for urban spaces and in different types of exhibition materials. The couple constantly seek to create a relationship between their painting and the environment in which this painting is inscribed, sometimes even outside, in external urban spaces (on tree trunks, along railway tracks, in stone, etc.) They use stencils as the basis of their art but, over time, they have enriched their work with other techniques which lend them greater freedom. Their pictorial work is based on the visual clichés captured by this pair of photo-enthusiasts during their jaunts. After living for a long time in Madrid and then Paris, they have now settled near Salzburg in Austria.
