About Jean-François Le Minh

Jean-François Le Minh is a French visual artist, now based in New York, NY. His work pushes the boundaries of traditional painting and art paradigms. Mixing oil paint with spray paint, acrylic, enamel, thermoplastic, stationery and various debris from his studio, his paintings culminate as interventions with the canvas’ surface, manifesting a unique artistic language.


“My practice engages with discourse surrounding the status of painting today and its atemporality in relation to conceptualism.

My growing interest in the observation and often appropriation of found mixed material has been a key component in my studio practice. I am concerned with what painting and sculpture can be or might be in our current society. Composed of traces, marks, and interventions on the canvas’ surface, I have started to develop a language of my own through my work.” - Jean-François Le Minh
