Brooklyn based Jules de Balincourt (previously featured here) is a French-American contemporary artist. He is best known for his abstract, atmospheric paintings with saturated colors, blurring the line between fantasy and reality. Force-fed on TV and an all-American mind-junk diet, his paintings are crafted with democratic gusto. Evoking notions of utopia and dystopia, de Balincourt’s paintings investigate public and private spaces and suggest an ever-changing landscape – both physical and psychological.

Brooklyn-based artist Jules de Balincourt paints the social, political and economic landscape of the United States, where the Paris-born artist has lived since childhood, is subject to satirical analysis and exuberant reimagining. He is best known for his abstract, atmospheric paintings with saturated colors, blurring the line between fantasy and reality.

Working from the position of an outsider, the artist questions structures of power and influence, laying bare injustices and hypocrisies while maintaining an amused attachment to the myths through which identity – individual and national – is constructed.
