Biography / JAUNE

Residing in Brussels, Belgium, former sanitation worker turned street artist Jaune first stepped into the spotlight in 2011, when his mostly small, multi-layered stencil works of miniature garbage men popped up all over the city. A piece of his work can be found right next to URBAN NATION’s entrance in Berlin, where he portrait a street scene resembling a doll house using his iconic ‘Mini Dudes’.

With most of his work done in stencil, the self-taught artist manages to attain a high level of detail. His lively and dynamic artworks, often showing more than a dozen of his ‘Mini Dudes’, are so rich in detail, that viewers rarely grasp the whole scene in one look.

Having worked as a sanitation worker himself, his fluorescently dressed miniatures of himself portrait the paradox between the visible and invisible, concealed from the public eye despite their flashy outfits, and often act in contrary to what the public opinion would expect e.g. playing golf with bags filled with trash, instead of picking them up.
