Many of his short experimental films have shown in festivals internationally and are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, the Guggenheim Museum and the New York Public Library.

He has earned a BFA degree from The College for Creative Studies and an MFA in Painting from Wayne State University in Detroit. His current paintings embody a saturated color palette and a painterly approach culled from a variation of expressive realism His work employs not only the technical traditions of classical anatomy and the convincing representation of the figure, but also the multiple psychological complexities, yet subtle nature of his subjects.

Jean-Paul has exhibited his work in various galleries and exhibition spaces, including the Alden B. Dow Museum, The Forum Gallery at The Cranbrook Academy of Arts, the historic Scarab Club, The Artist Market, The Ann Arbor Art Center, The Pontiac Creative Art Center, The Cherry Hill Village Theater, Madonna University, The Plymouth Community Arts Council, The Tangent Gallery, The Guardian Building of Detroit and The Alfred Berkowitz Gallery.

He has lectured extensively about his work’s technique and conceptual inspirations at various venues including Madonna University, The Dearborn Art Society Club, The Garden City Art Club and The Three Cities Art Club.  Recently, Jean-Paul was a visiting artist for six months at The Dancing Dog Gallery in Ann Arbor, MI. Jean-Paul’s art can be found in the collections of The Plymouth Community Arts Council, PCS Global Company, Milano’s high end Men’s Fine Apparel and in the private collections of art lovers across the state of Michigan including a portrait in the collection of Hip Hop artist Eminem.
