Gradually he developed his own style whereby In an incisive and percussive graphic design, he draws stenciled faces on abstract backgrounds that reflect the degraded, deteriorated effects of urban walls. JM Robert wants his painting to speak a contemporary pictorial language as it is expressed on the walls of our cities. Through his painting, JM Robert immediately captures our eyes and invites us to grasp this presence, strong and brief, striking with a look, an anonymous face. The darkness of the graphics by which he captures this expression contrasts with the very flashy color palette that is his.
