Jean-Pierre Pincemin (born April 7, 1944 in Paris , † May 17, 2005 in Arcueil ) was a French painter and sculptor .


Pincemin began painting at the age of 23 and gave up his learned profession as a lathe operator . First he experimented with prints, coloring, folds and cut-outs on the canvas .

His first exhibition took place in 1968. During this time, he and other artists from the Supports / Surfaces group took part in a discussion about the conditions and status of painting. He then reflected on the color and organization of color surfaces in chessboards and strips.

Towards the end of the 1980s he oriented himself in the direction of representational painting, whereby he continued to occupy himself with color harmonies and contrasts .

For Jean-Pierre Pincemin, art is synonymous with experimentation and invention. For him, this principle is the basis for an outstanding individual work. This principle allows the need to join a painting tradition.
