Jean Kinsella is a French artist who, prior to painting, has been working for twenty five years in the film industry as
an actor, screenwriter and director. On stage, he has also played Shakespeare, Molière, Miller, Sand among others.
Drawing and painting were other forms of creativity that always stimulated his interest. After spending hours of
pre-production drawing storyboards for his films projects and creating four paintings for his short film "Fractals",
he felt compelled to explore his creative ideas on paper and canvas furthermore.
That's how he started painting oil portraits.
From anonymous faces to historical figures, his subjects are always
telling stories of resilience and social, humanistic commitment.
