Jean-Charles Penot, French designer passionate about art and Asian culture has strong experiences in artistic creativity and advertising design. Jean-Charles came to be settled in China Four years ago after deciding to enhance his artistic skills with new inspiration. Seeing the difference in culture, inspired him to use materials that perhaps that were none conventional such as wood, soy sauce and fabric instead of paper and acrylics. This is when he made his step away from traditional flat canvases to 3D mediums such a sculpture and lighting. Working in event special design helped hone this thirst for this field allowing him to chose “Lighting” and “Interactive” methods as his preferred medium of choice when creating his installations. With him drawing this inspiration from everyday objects in his day to day life and travels throughout China and beyond.
He created this for our latest Glug Beijing event August 2015.
