Jean-François Debongnie was born in Brussels and has been based in Singapore since 1989. A self-taught artist, he is keen to work with large canvases, which give him the opportunity to explore the themes that inspire him. Florals are a central motif in his work, treated both as a conceptual topic and as a study in movement, landscape, and color. The use of Chinese ink adds a dramatic fluidity to all Jean-François' works, and the general abstract feel of his style is easily recognizable.
