Jean-Philippe Delhomme is a painter, writer, cultural blogger, and fashion illustrator whose work has gained him notoriety across the globe. Throughout his illustrious career, he has worked for numerous magazines and collaborated on award winning ad campaigns for Barneys New York, Le Bon Marché in Paris and The Mark Hotel in New York to name a few. He has also directed several animated films for commercial clients most notably for Sotheby’s, Saab Cars USA, and VISA in France.
He is internationally known for his witty satirical illustrations that are as much gentle ribbing at the notion of the “good life” in the modern world as they are chronicles of the hip and fabulous. For this reason his work has been embraced by the worlds of fashion, art and design as well as luxury commercial clients.
Both his writing and artwork have been published in numerous compilations and published as books and he has exhibited work at Partners and Spade, James Danziger Gallery, Collette in Paris and at the Rocket Gallery in Tokyo. His illustrated books include, “Art Contemporain”, “Le Drame de la Deco” (Éditions Denoël), and the children’s book, “Visit to Another Planet“, (2000 Callaway). “The Cultivated Life”, (2009 Rizzoli), the first English compilation of Delhomme’s work shines as a collection of his most poignant satire. Recently his blog, The Unknown Hipster, which details the comings and goings of the world’s most notable and stylish men and women, has been published as a book of the same title (2012 August Editions).
Jean-Philippe Delhomme is perhaps one of the most influential artist-illustrators working today. His clients have included the LA Times, Departures, W Magazine, Grazia Casa, The Mark Hotel New York, The New York Times, LVMH, Shinsegae Department Stores, Le Bon Marché, Indochine, French Architectural Digest, SAAB, VISA, Interview Magazine, Vogue Nippon, House & Garden, Vogue UK and GQ.
