An artistic journey
with Jean-Michel Folon

Jean-Michel Folon

Jean Michel FOLON expose ses oeuvres au chateau Sainte Roselyne aux Arcs sur Argens.

Associating my name with a chapel in Saint-Paul will be an expression of my love for all those in the village whom I have loved, because it is a life centre. And as Picasso said, art and life are one.

Jean-Michel Folon: guide to diversity , creativity and embracing the world
In 2018, Saint-Paul de Vence has celebrated the 10th anniversary of Folon’s chapel - the region’s last artist’s chapel. Jean-Michel Folon’s masterpiece still fills visitors’ hearts and minds with light through the «white penitent» values of love and sharing. 
The Belgian artist discovered Saint-Paul de Vence in the mid ‘70s. The village chapel and its illustrations, paintings and sculptures constituted his last project, conveying the universal values of love and peace.
