Paris Painter/Artist Jérôme Royer: Listen to Your Gut Feelings and Dare
From an early age, Jerome always had a knack for art. At school, whether it was just a doodle on a notepad or a full-blown project in art-class, students and teaches often praised him for his natural skill. Jerome continued his studies in hopes of becoming an architect and designing building. It wasn't until he turned 38 that he decided to immerse himself in painting. Jerome began to post doodles and caricatures on instagram page, and surprisingly received positive feedback from not just friends, but strangers from all over the world. Now he must create everyday. For Jerome, art is like a constant research about beauty, feelings and reality.
