Hadrien Jacquelet is a French figurative painter. His portraits of friends, controversial figures and himself waver between faithful renditions and idealized creatures. His most recent series depicts synthetic figures with ambiguous genders addressing identity at the turn of our century. Since 2010, he has participated in group shows in Paris, Los Angeles, Berlin and Milan. Personal exhibitions include One Wall Gallery, curated by Patrick Steffen in 2022 and Superstition, curated by Jay Ezra Nayssan, which opened at Del Vaz Projects, Los Angeles, in 2015. He lives and works in Paris.
