Jeff Roland 1969 | France

Born in France in 1969, he has sold works to collectors in the UK, the USA, Norway, Canada, Italy and France. Roland is in part an outsider artist. He is self taught and shares Dubuffet's belief that art which emerges from the subconscious should not be redefined according to the expectations of the modern art world. Roland's work is personal and immediate. Yet while his pieces bear the hallmarks of the outsider movement, they are also influenced by post-modern thought. Unlike more traditional artists, Roland consciously strikes up a rapport with his viewer by interpolating his works with contemporary visual and literary references. Jeff Roland creates bold, colourful pieces which reflect a constant desire to explore the human psyche.
