Julieth Mars Toussaint’s work is formed by different sources, including social issues, literature, and psychology. Examining social identity and focusing his attention on people and everyday objects, the artist creates his own unique artistic language using bold brushstrokes and strong colours, engaging the viewers in a dynamic contemporary experience. His compositions occupy a space between the figurative and the abstract, where forms are distorted and decomposed.
Born in 1957 in St. Pierre, Martinique, France, Julieth studied at the EPDI (Ecole Professionnelle de Dessin Industriel), specialising in advertising. After graduation, he worked as a designer in the fashion industry and became a professional painter in 1989. He currently works and lives in Paris.
