Jean Paul Goude is, for me, les Kodakettes, the man behind the Bicentenary of the French Revolution on les Champs-Elysées, the man who discover Grace Jones. I remember all this moments, that were pure magic. As an other « JPG » (Jean-Paul Gaultier), Jean-Paul Goude is a major artist.
This week, during the launching of Goudemalion, a retrospective and creative vision of his oeuvre encompassing all his areas of activity (fashion, photography, advertising…), i also discover an artist full of humour, a great illustrator and a lover of women.
Here are some pictures (mostly illustrations) of the exhibition.
