Jérémie talks about his work:

«I've always been attracted to the extreme, do not "love" but "love" things "immense" and not just "big."
At first I drew a lot of characters extremely thin then they began to enlarge unlike me. Most of them are huge and that like them I see my own body.
I am influenced by artists such as: Voutch, Francis Bacon, Mark Ryden, Valerio Adami, Lucian Freud, Jean Rustin, Ray Caesar ou encore Leigh Bowery.

The absence of head :

It is certainly not physically represented but it forms in your mind, so it's up to him to invent what he wants you to see: A close, a person smiling, sad, blonde or brunette ...
This gives a kind of interactivity from the image, then look good and you will see.
Deepening a little question, I think we can feel an expression by the body. It is, nevertheless, the 3 / 4 of our being, yet most of the time, we summarize the other as they please.
I tend to draw many women in my images as they are, first, visually interesting and, secondly, their world attracts me and I feel more close to them.
I would like, through my work, show that the folds and curves can be beautiful and pleasing. But if you look in more detail, big or thin characters of my paintings are never really completely.»
