Jean-Philippe Delhomme is an artist and a writer, born in 1959 in France. He started his carrier as an illustrator, working for numerous magazines around the world and on advertising campaigns, such as the iconic 90’s Barneys New York ads. As a culture chronicler, he has published and written illustrated books and was commissioned by Louis Vuitton for its New York Travel Book. In the recent years, his work has been exclusively shifting to painting, with personal shows in Paris, New York and Seoul at Galerie Perrotin. The Musée d’Orsay invited him as its first Instagram resident in 2020 and will exhibit a series of his paintings of the museum’s storage from November 2021.

About the project

Music as travel (2021)
Acrylic paint on wooden box.
“If the Louis Vuitton classic trunk evokes the art of travel through time, from 200 years past to an unlimited future, I thought of travel as music and music as travel, especially in our times, when physical travel has been challenged. On the side of the box, I painted sceneries associated to my own visions and fantasies of bands and musicians, space travelling and art. Looking at art is another way of travelling and could also be a travelling destination. I also believe in music as a universal language, which is useful in one’s travel.”
