This is the first site devoted to the body of work of Jean Paul Marcheschi.
The paintings shown here, made between 1984 and 2001, most very large in size, were created for various, often eccentric, locations throughout Europe.

Born in Corsica in 1951, Jean Paul Marcheschi lives and works in Paris.

Since 1984, the "brush of fire" has been the sole instrument used in the creation of his paintings.
