Extreme Artist Jean Francois DETAILLE has been onboard the 14-day Marquesas cruise as part of our Enrichment Series onboard the luxury MS Paul Gauguin in French Polynesia.Jean Francois has held two feature evening performances with great success in our Grand Salon. He fast-painted famous persons, and the likes of Jean-Michel COUSTEAU and world champion free diver Herbert NITSCH (both were on the same cruise).His show is a highly entertaining blend of stand-up comedy, audience participation and incredible art created with great speed on huge canvasses. In addition to the feature shows Jean Francois gave hands-on lectures and taught guests how to make their own painting on a small canvas as a memory to take home with them. His lesson on how to paint with coffee and wine was a winner, as over forty guests participated and went home with their own masterpiece. Jean Francois is a fascinating and amicable person and spends a lot of his free time socializing with guests. He is the strongest performer we have to date, and proud to have him part of our Enrichment Series.

I take great pride in endorsing Jean Francois Detaille as entertainer of the year 2009.  Not simply because he is able to keep his audience riveted to his presentation, nor because the surprise factor in his delivery causes his audience to erupt with applause. Not even because he is witty, and uses pulsating music and captivating imagery to capture the imagination of his fans.  What I, and so many of the participants who saw Jean Francois in Barbados are impressed with is his ability to get the message to stick.  During our Customer service conference at the Barbados Hilton, JF successfully imparted to participants, the way to redefine their old visions and paint their own new canvas of excellence by looking at problems in new ways.  And what a fantastic way to demonstrate this learning but by doing it himself through art.   JF as he is lovingly known in the Caribbean has left an indelible mark on everyone who attended and those who heard about his performance.   We want him back, soon. Ken Corbie Managing Director
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jean Francois for approximately ten years.  During that time, I’ve gotten to know him for his on-stage performances, all of which have been excellent, but also for his off-stage work.  He’s a great act – and what makes a great act is not just what he or she does on-stage, but it’s all of the off-stage stuff as well – being flexible, accommodating, no ego or attitude, and generally having a great can-do attitude.  I recommend Jean Francois every chance I get, and knowing he is nominated for Entertainer Of The Year makes me very happy – there’s no better Artist I can recommend for this warranted honor than Jean Francois.  Am happy to answer any questions or discuss him in greater detail. Mark Felix Director/Drury Entertainment Group Drury Design Dynamics, Inc.
I have a Theatrical Agency in Las Vegas, NV and for the past 35 years have been and continue to provide first class entertainment worldwide.
 I first met Jean Francois about 20 years ago and he presented his show to me. I have contracted many different types of shows but Jean Francois’ show is one of the most unique, professional and entertaining shows I have ever seen.
 I would strongly recommend his show to anyone who is seeking quality entertainment. Sandy Dobrich, President Sandy Dobrich Enterprises

“You went well above and beyond what we normally experience with any entertainers! Cefus Mc Rae  President and Senior Producer, Omega Media Group, Atlanta.

“As an Event producer, I can sometimes go over the top in coming up with new and crazy ideas, Jean Francois just say: ” ok, let see how I can make this work!” Looking the list of past winner of the “Entertainment of the Year” award, I can’t imagine that list being complete without the Inclusion of “Jean Francois’ Extreme Art.” Paul Creighton, CSEP, Executive Vice President, T. Skorman Productions. Orlando

You are one of the most powerful entertainer on the Las Vegas strip. Bud Pico, Event Manager, Las Vegas Experience.

Jean François is a multi-dimensional talent. His artistic abilities are without question, remarkable. However, it is how he engages his audience with energy and connection that makes him so special and so effective, regardless of the audience demographic. Even without dialogue, Jean François has the ability to communicate a concept, interaction and emotion, bringing his audience to its feet. He is also very flexible and a team player all the way. His paintings aren’t the only thing that are beautiful. As planners and producers, he makes us all look good. Leonard Neil. President Leonard Neil Production.
