The Art of “Dreamscapes”

1989 Video


In early eighties Jean Francois Detaille set sail on a globe trotting adventure, taking him to exotic destinations around the blue planet. To support his journey Jean Francois created multiple painting techniques and, styles of art with immediate results to fit the demand of his nomadic lifestyle. Jean Francois created Dreamscapes, a spray can art technique based on the quick drying solvent of aerosols and a relief paint technique. Jean Francois’ desire to use a limited selection of art tools pushed him to use instead a variety of unconventional items such as, bottle caps, cooking pots, barbecue lid and a simple painter’s knife. Jean Francois painted and sold thousands of paintings during his travels through Europe, Mexico, Florida, the Caribbean and the Pacific Islands before landing on the West Coast of California in the early eighties, where he began painting thousands of paintings at art festivals. Jean Francois has created a huge following by inspiring street artists to create celestial paintings on the spot. Jean Francois’ high mastery of this simple technique has matched the results of similar more intricate oil painting techniques use by renowned artists such as Christian Lassen and Wyland. Jean François has joined the Los Angeles Police Department and other associations to teach kids to express their artistic abilities not on the walls of the city but, instead on canvasses. Jean Francois creates his Dreamscapes to music and his inspirations comes from his travels and his inner peace. Jean Francois still paints Dreamscapes today on murals and at selective requests. Jean Francois also presents a stage version of Dreamscapes and art demonstrations available for promotional needs
