Today Jean-Baptiste is 84 years old and he has a long history behind him.
His works were exhibited all over the world - Europe, US, Australia, South Africa, Senegal, South Africa, China and Japon.
For more than 10 years, however, he has lived a cloistered existence in Marrakech, purposefully hidden from the world, drowning on the inspiration of his surroundings to cultivate a new style. He has created the Tarot of Marrakesh, and working on the Tarot and symbolisme influences his a lot. That is how his new style has emerged.
Out of Jean-Baptiste's decade in the shadows comes a new collection of collages (mixed media).
In 2016 Jean-Baptiste was chosen by ROLLS ROYCE MOTORS to participate in ROLLS ROYCE ART Tour 2016.
