French-American artist, he developed his repertory of artistic forms in the United States and continues to work and exhibit regularly in France, the rest of Europe, and China.

Animal spirits will be widely present at Jean-Pierre Sergent's booth, because he is a committed and passionate artist! For years he has worked tirelessly to bring out and present to the public images of forgotten rituals such as the god of rain and lightning, Maya Chac, inscribed in an axis mundi with the four cardinal directions, thus placed at the center of a world he inseminates! There are also images of animals sprouting out of his imagination: green humpback whales, sixty-nine numbered pink birds (a sacred number in India), two Greek blue deer, mirrored... some Zapotec black jaguars inhabiting shamans spirits during ecstatic trances! Eroticism will also be present, with his new fetish series illustrating the immeasurable feminine energy of Shakti-Yoni, full of desire and passion! As sex regenerates life and the world, again and again, tirelessly and always bringing us joy! It is only afterward, long after that, that materialistic and commercial human thought destroys the world and uses it as a dustbin for its adventure as a sickly explorer and destroyer of all human wisdom. Who are we to destroy the Earth’s soul in this way? Who needs that much stupidity nowadays? Greed? Wars? And Human enslavement that irreparably destroys our environment? One must resist! Since the dawn of human time, artists and shamans know how to do that very well! In hoping that a new "Dawn with golden fingers" will rise again! And that we will always hear the birds enchant us every spring to regenerate this world that desperately needs Art, Poetry, and Love so much! Only true and real life must be honored and worshiped! Expecting that it will continue and persist as follows: beautiful, wild, erotic and unsubmissive!
