He is coming from South (of Belgium). Born in Jemappes he studied at the ESAPV of MonsAnd is now a teacher in illustration and strips at the Art School of Binche and at the Gustave Camus Art School in Châtelet.

His first exhibition was in 1976 but among about a dozen exhibitions two only were in Brussels.This is no fantasy world but something we can live daily, no social or political noises, the artist works in a serene atmosphere, in a kind of darkness. Pictures are so familiar you can easily imagine it is from you and your home.Pictures are like snapshots showing the daily life.

A man sitting in an armchair seems to be expecting something.
What ? Maybe he is waiting for his meal or the TV information bulletin ? It is no prince, no lord; it is you neighbour, somebody living in your street.Some couples are moving in a dance movement still in the same semi-darkness, a veiled light that has a strange result of mystery and give these gouaches a particular atmosphere.

The colours are not dominating but just at the right level to underline the scenery. No strong or bright shades, just the smooth ones. A quiet ambient everybody hopes to find at any moment.Winner of the triennial 1984 of the strip in Mons; awarded in the Mouscron festival of plastic arts in 1990 and laureate of the prize of City of La Louvière in 2000, Jean-Pol Lété has to be seen or discovered because of the serenity of his search which is rare nowadays
