Biography: Jean-Michel Crapanzano is a professional multimedia artist who was born in France and currently resides in the Netherlands. He works as a photographer, filmmaker, drawer, and wall painter. Jean-Michel’s interests are as vast as his skill sets; identity, history, propaganda, and the notion of futurology. 
Speculative design, speculative scenario's, u-chronies and parallel worlds are the basis of his practice. He explores narrative's constructions behind the mask of conformity and all form of powers and he reveals the invisible psychological and political structure of human behavior : what could be the possible evolution of our specie, how doe we see our future?  

He is specialized in questions concerning the links between past, present and future, and combines artistic skills that are internationally recognized by museums, art centers, galleries and municipalities. He is also a university lecturer, which enables him to create forward-looking scenarios and group dynamics in participatory projects based on permaculture, ecosystems and citizen participation.


Digital drawings based on my first graphic novel.

"The Gardens of Eden" is a groundbreaking art project by artist Jean-Michel Crapanzano, inspired by his graphic novel of the same name. This innovative endeavor combines the power of visual storytelling with the principles of ecosystems and permaculture to explore the delicate balance between humanity, nature, and technology. 
Through its graphic novel, digital drawings, public installations, workshops, and citizen participation, this project aims to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable living and the potential dangers of unchecked technological advancement.
