Comment & Collect
Alain Georges Frank Jacquet was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1939. After studying drama at the University of Grenoble, he transferred to the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1959, where he studied architecture until 1960. As a painter Alain Jacquet remained self-taught. In the early 1960s he became acquainted with the Nouveaux Réalistes - Yves Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely. In 1962 he made the first "Camouflages", three-dimensional sculptures painted in colorful camouflage. He employed the same principle for ironic paintings, but soon Alain Jacquet went a step further: Around 1963/64 he combined reproductions of paintings by old masters with trivial motifs. Around the middle of the decade Alain Jacquet developed "Mec Art", where he enlarged images so much that single color dots become visible. In 1964 Alain Jacquet went to New York and met the luminaries of Pop-Art: Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein. In 1978 he went to St. Martin, an island of the Antilles. Two years later he returned to New York and made pictures that show the earth from outer space and became occupied with modern print methods and computer images. From then on he lived alternatingly on St. Martin and in New York. In 1989 he moved to Paris, where he taught at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Alain Jacquet died 2008 in New York.
