Jean Vodaine, the poet-artist

This week, discover the work of Jean Vodaine, an artist but also a poet [Read more]

Painter, engraver, printer-typographer, the work of Jean Vodaine remains deeply linked to poetry. This week, discover two paintings by this protean artist.

Jean Vodaine's work is characterised by a pointillist and rustic, almost primitive style. In these two paintings, the repetition of coloured dots gives optical effects and a kinetic aspect to the characters he invents. A universe made of signs and symbols, Jean Vodaine mixes colours on his palette and multiplies the dots.

Even if for fifty years, Jean Vodaine did not stop painting and engraving, he remains a great poet. He used to say about his creations: "I don't make art, I make things, I make things to better serve poetry".

Frederic Vladimir Kaucic, born on 6 July 1921 in Vol?e (today in Slovenia, part of the municipality of Tolmin). In 1947, he published under the pseudonym Jean Vodaine on the occasion of the creation of his first collection of poems, Rose et Noir. In the same year, he bought a hand press and, while continuing to write poems, he started to print them.

In 1962, he founded the typographic and poetic review Dire alongside Edmond Dune and Adrien Printz. This review allowed many typographic experiments.

Close to the artists of art brut, Jean Vodaine has published many artists such as Gaston Chaissac, Jean Dubuffet and Raymond Queneau.
