Floating between Cobra artists such as Appel, Corneille, Lucebert and Alechinsky, Jan Latinne has a mysterious, almost heavenly gift for fusing colors into unique pearls of harmony.
He is a magician who composes with colors, like Mozart with musical notes; playful and frisky, frivolous and happy. As simple as a child, he builds parties on canvas; cheerful scenes, splashing springs, children playing and fertile oases that always give you a cheerful feeling.
His paintings are a joy of color and an uncomplicated, clearly recognizable visual language. Drawings and objects also radiate the same joy, zest for life and enthusiasm. At the age of 83, it earns him the status of “a youthfully idiosyncratic artist”.
