Il pittore Francese🎨 Jean-Pierre Alaux, è nato a La Ciotat, in Francia. Non ha dovuto combattere per diventare un pittore, come molti dei suoi coetanei. È un discendente diretto di una famiglia di pittori o architetti risalente all'inizio del XVIII secolo.
Di conseguenza, ha trovato difficile da prendere sul serio anche se era estremamente serio sul suo lavoro.
Jean-Pierre Alaux crea arte da più di cinquant'anni senza seguire una moda particolare ed è sempre rimasto fedele al suo stile: gli amanti dell'arte non hanno mai avuto dubbi sul fatto che sia uno dei grandi artisti del nostro tempo.
Da parte sua, spera modestamente che la diversità che apporta a ciascuna delle sue opere aumenti la soddisfazione visiva e spirituale del pubblico rimuovendo la noia, la fonte di molti mali.
