Mesnager Jérôme

Jérôme Mesnager is a French artist born on January 29, 1961 in Colmar (Haut-Rhin). He is a French painter. As father of "the man in white", he is one of the first Parisian street painters. In thirty years, his art has grown into an artistic movement commonly referred to as "urban art" or "graffiti". Jérôme Mesnager studied at the Lycée Fénelon Sainte-Marie before attending Boulle school in 1974, where he trained as a cabinetmaker and later taught. In 1979 he took comic lessons from Yves Got and Georges Pichard, professors at the Graduate School of Applied Arts Duperré. He is one of the founders (1982) of Zig-Zag, a group of ten very young artists who "zigzag in the jungle of cities" and decide to occupy the street by drawing graffiti. On January 16, 1983, he invents the "Man in White", "a symbol of light, strength and peace." Also called "White Body" or "White Man", this white silhouette has been reproduced by Jérôme Mesnager all over the world, from the walls of Paris to the Great Wall of China.
