CS Lewis once said “How monotonously alike all the great tyrants and conquerors have been”. This was the primary thought behind the series Monsters and Marilyns. Throughout history Fascists, Communists, Marxists, and Socialists have murdered and oppressed those who were under their rule, yet popular culture and propaganda have tried to make these monsters into heros and icons. Twisting peoples memories and brainwashing them into an Orwellian nightmare. Andy Warhol’s silkscreen painting of Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic painting of the Pop Art Movement. Not many people know that the painting was meant to show the mask of popularity that a celebrity wears. On the outside there were different shades of happiness, but under all the paint and smiles there was something darker: depression, drug use, and suicide. Jesse took this idea and reinterpreted it to speak truth into our popular culture. The hair and make-up from the “Marilyn Monroe” painting is placed on politicians, dictators, public officials, as well as old horror movie monsters that are liars, murderers, and tyrants. By doing this the statement is made that no matter how much popular culture or the mass media tries to dress up and beautify these people, they are still monsters. Saddam Hussein, Barack Obama, Frankenstein, Dracula, Che Guevara, Ho Chi Minh, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Pin Head, Leather Face, Barney Frank, Chairmen Mao, the Bride of Frankenstein, Hitler, Hannibal Lector, and Jesse Jackson are only some of the people that Jesse have Marilynized.

Liz West creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light. Working across a variety of mediums, West aims to provoke a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer through her works. She is interested in exploring how sensory phenomena can invoke psychological and physical responses that tap into our own deeply entrenched relationships to colour. West's investigation into the relationship between colour and light is often realised through an engagement between materiality and a given site. Within physical and architectural space, West uses light as a material that radiates outside of its boundaries and containers. She playfully refracts light through using translucent, transparent or reflective materials, directing the flow of artificial and natural light. Our understanding of colour can only be realised through the presence of light. By playing and adjusting colour, West brings out the intensity and composition of her spatial arrangements.
Mathilde and Gautier Jourdain are collectors, fascinated by the urban design since about twenty years. In 2008, they create the project 400ml (exhibitions, books and conferences), this crazy bet gathers 400 sprays customized by so many street-artists.
This experience leads them to the creation of the art gallery in 2010. The gallery is installed at the heart of the 13th district of Paris, a district of the capital where the urban design holds a dominating square. Faithful to their convictions, Mathilde and Gautier work with three ideas in head: help and support the artists, make discover and surprise, offer the desire and the ways to collect. With a selection of international artists, they realize exceptional events in an urban and atypical frame.

He was born in 1977 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, where he still lives to this day. Most of his works, which have been classified as minimalistic, are done in oil, although he has experience with pastels, charcoal, watercolor, acrylics, and airbrushing.
