Organic artist Jeremy Metivier who grew up in Tours, France, began a career as a chef at the young age of 14, he describes his main reason behind becoming a chef stems from strong family values and the joy of bringing people together. This opportunity evolved his passion for expressing his creativity which soon ignited his love for art. His artwork has now grown into a deeply therapeutic and meditative process, which is noticeable in his unpredictable work.
At 17 years old, Jeremy began taking his artwork more seriously, creating his first large piece of art, a mural for a school in Joue-les-tours. In 2012, Jeremy moved to Australia and took on a deeper understanding of human interactivity, communication and idea of over-consuming. For him human are hungry of fastest communication, to outgrow what he called “emotional mapping “ and need of higher and faster, something to not get trapped in the rabbit hole of emotions’. He believes colours and shapes are visual and mental healing.
His strong emotional connection with his work makes his strokes and techniques very prominent and almost abstract. Getting inspiration from natures delicate surroundings and architectures solid dictating structures, the flow and energy of people and nature become a voice through Jeremy’s work. Jeremy describes each of his artwork as a pin in time for the emotion and experience he was feeling or living in that moment.
Jeremy’s work is very experimental, every piece a detailed story on his emotions and travels. He is not scared to try many different ways in his unpredictable work.
