Jace

Jace is the creator of Gouzou, an adorable little character who travels along with him and invades the walls all over the globe. With his character, Jace deploys a childish, caustic and derisive world. Gouzou can either be manipulative, in love or impulsive, and always finds a way to wittily adapt to his environment. Jace takes care of placing Gouzou in the perfect spot and context for each of his appearances, granting him a pictorial power in situ. Frenetic carrier of love and poetry, his style and message reflect with an ecstatic accuracy his multiethnic culture, his hunger to travel, his desire to share his work in modesty.

The confidential graffiti artist from the late 80s is now considered as a major trailblazer of ultramarine street art. Although he still lives on the volcanic rock of La Réunion in the Indian ocean, Jace travels across the ocean whenever he can to look for new spots.

So far, twenty countries have been blessed by his stamp: the United States, Madagascar, China, Luxembourg and Brazil.

Jace was invited at Jardin Rouge for the event Behind the Red Wall and for the Tmecha fel Medina project, cultural walk and exhibition in Marrakech.
