PARIS (PRWEB) January 19, 2021
Jean Motell, born 1 July 1979, is a French artist and lo-fi activist. He likes old school text messages and made a best selling dictionary about it "The Smiley Dictionary For Old School Text Messages". Jean also likes Kodak disposable cameras and to sneak in fashion parties, even if he’s not on the guest list. He made an iconic photo book about it: “Gatecrash”.
His artistic work is influenced by Piero Manzoni, Erik Satie, and Jean-Edern Hallier. Jean Motell is also a composer and the founder of Scanner Magazine, a visual biannual magazine. He's also a celebrity connoisseur, with styling secrets he stole from celebrities like Frank Ocean, Lindsay Lohan, Sam Fender, Travis Scott & Luke Day.
"I sneaked in fashion week parties for ten years, drank Champagne for free and talked to celebs, and nobody invited me: I was not on the guest list! I observed how good celebrities look;) Style is like your DNA, it's everything and it's not a matter of money. As an underground musician, my true passion, I'd like to bring true alternative references in mainstream music, that's what I said to Katy Perry in a cocktail party but she never called me back " says Jean Motell.
With his first movie "Pastel", Jean will offer next summer a dive into his lo-fi universe, through an experimental movie shot in miniDV wih an exclusive original soundtrack. For Jean, creation is a pretext to have a more intense life. MiniDV is the perfect medium for him, fun & raw. Because Jean Motell is still a wide-eyed kid who wants to celebrate life.
