The leap "MESNAGER"
Jérôme Mesnager, the inventor of the Man in White, "a symbol of light, strength and peace". This white silhouette by Jérôme Mesnager has been reproduced all over the world, from the walls of Paris to the Chinese wall.
In 1995, he created a large mural in the street of Ménilmontant, in the 20th district, called "C'est nous les gars de Ménilmontant".
Jérôme Mesnager often associates himself with Némo, whose favourite character is a black silhouette of a man in a trench coat wearing a hat. As such, he accompanied the Parisian urban art movement (Blek le rat, Miss.Tic, Jef Aérosol, Némo, etc.) and the Figuration Libre in the early 1980s.
In 2006, Jérôme produced a series of canvases inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco. The same year, he tackled the Hôtel des Académies et des Arts in Paris and invaded the space with his White Bodies.
