Jean Labourdette AKA Turf One (Canada) is somewhat obsessed with Russian icons, dead things, carnival sideshows, seedy theatre stages and Victorian-looking little people sporting dandy facial hair. Technically, his paintings are reminiscent of the 15th-century Flemish Primitives. Labourdette has forged a unique artistic vision and signature aesthetic over years of compulsive creation. He got his start in the late 1980s as a graffiti artist in Paris, gaining renown for his distinctive and surreal characters. He evolved into a prolific and sought-after artist working as an illustrator, comic artist, filmmaker and painter. Since the early 2000s he has dedicated himself to painting full time.
