Wisdom and Order is number two in a ten piece collection entitled An Elegant Collision. The theme behind this collection is the universal order behind breakdown or chaos , and the natural correcting of what may appear to be destruction. This piece is to me is an explosion ,quickly outward moving, but somehow guided by a pure force and an order . The original piece is 44 inches x 60 inches and is acrylic,oil paint pen on canvas.

My name is Jean-Philippe Boucicaut. I am painter/photographer born in NYC to parents of Haitian and Corsican descent. My father is a respected documentary film maker and my mother is a painter,both my grandfathers were photographers, mom's cousin is Regine Chassagne of the band Arcade Fire and dad's cousin was Jean-Michel Basquiat. There are classical musicians,chefs, filmmakers and writers in my family and fortunately everyone was encouraged to pursue whatever they were good at. I started drawing at 7 and got my first camera at 11. Donna Karan gave me my first profession job in the arts at 21 as a junior design asst at her Menswear Collection. After a couple of years there I returned to my first loves of painting and photography. They always seemed to be two separate fields and they are in many ways:one being solitary and internal another being more social and interactive. Portraits and faces in general have always fascinated me and so when I started shooting photographs, I began by testing new faces at some of the NY and London modelling agencies.It was a natural progression from painting faces. The current direction of my work is the blending of painting and photography and the blending of painting and sculpture. I spend my time between NY and Los Angeles.
