Studio Poems brings together poems written by Jean-Philippe Delhomme in French and English. They are accompanied by previously unpublished ink drawings. From his studio, which he never tires of depicting, Delhomme describes his inner and outer world. A little literary jewel, with meticulous design and printing.
Published on the occasion of Jean-Philippe Delhomme's exhibition at Perrotin Gallery, Tokyo, in 2023.
Jean-Philippe Delhomme (born 1959 in Nanterre) is a French painter, illustrator, and writer. Delhomme's still lifes or landscapes are not just painted, but authored; the thread between his different forms of expression: drawing, writing and painting. Jean-Philippe Delhomme also portrays immense expression through portraiture, conveying an authorly perspective which serves as the common thread throughout his practice.
In 2020, Jean-Philippe Delhomme has been selected as the first Instagram artist in residence at the Musée d'Orsay during which he imagined the "digital life" of the artists whose works made up the wealth of the museum's collection. Additionally, a large mural by the artist has been installed in Hong Kong's private members' club, Carlyle & Co at the Rosewood Hotel.
As a writer and illustrator, he published books with Louis Vuitton, Rizzoli, Editions Deno l and contributed to numerous magazines such as Vanity Fair France, Zeit Magazin, LA Times, GQ US and France, A.D. France, M Le Monde, Apartamento, August Journal, The New Yorker, Vogue (France, UK, Japan, Spain).
