J-Philippe Lacroze’s artistic eye

« I work intuitively and above all rely on my artistic eye ».

Jean-Philippe Lacroze

Passionate by the world of contemporary art, Jean-Philippe Lacroze started the adventure in the 90’s, presenting works in a art gallery. This drove me naturally to become an associate partner at the Galerie Pascal Lainé in Ménerbes in 2007.


Drawing on my experience, I decided to create the Art Connect agency, in order to support, defend and promote the family of visual artists that I represent (painters, sculptors, photographers or video artists…) among all economic and social actors, from companies to individuals.

« It dawned on me that the corporate world also had an important part to play in the promotion of artistic creation among the general public ».
