Jacques Villeneuve

Mouth Artist

Belgium

ABOUT

Jaques Villeneuve was born on 15 March 1958 in Belgium, with severe physical disabilities. He cannot use his arms and his legs developed unequally. Since he is six years old he has painted with his mouth and has constantly striven to further develop this skill. On the one hand, he attended the City of Tienen Drawing Academy, where he completed the upper secondary course. On the other hand, he completed the final course in drawing and painting at the City of Leuven Academy. Jacques Villeneuve frequently chooses landscapes or figurative fantasies as motifs for his paintings. However, his main strength is his circus scenes painted like a mosaic in bright colours and characterized by convincing poetic expression.

At the young age of twenty five, in 1975, Jacques Villeneuve was granted a scholarship by the Association. It was only five years later that he became a full member of the AMFPA, which gave him the opportunity both to organize and stage solo exhibitions and to participate in group exhibitions. He has exhibited his works primarily in the city of Tienen, where he lives and where a broad public attends his shows, but he has also had exhibitions in other Belgian cities and in Poland.
