Painter to Saint-Denis - Reunion
Jace was born in Le Havre in 1973 and moved to Reunion Island when his parents had to move there for professional reasons. In 1990, he studied biology in Saint-Denis and it is there that he created his first Gouzou; a small orange character without face, hands or feet.
He has been seen in some thirty countries and territories: Reunion Island, France (Paris, Le Havre, Rouen, Montpellier, Marseille, etc.), Mauritius, Madagascar, Mayotte, South Africa, Botswana, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, Macao, Japan, the United States, Brazil, Portugal, England, Germany, Morocco, Tunisia, Spain, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy, India, Holland, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Colombia, Corsica, Croatia, Denmark, etc.
Jace is the author of the gouzous, small orange and faceless characters, sometimes accompanied by a cow, which can be found in the streets of towns and on the sides of roads since 1992. Specialised in the hijacking of advertising posters, he has exhibited his works in the four corners of Reunion Island and the world on several occasions since 1996. He has also published several works for authors in which his work in the field can be seen in photographic form. The quality of his work has earned him several publications in various international magazines.
This year, he is in charge of the "street art" part of the "Réunion Métis" Festival
