Jean Labourdette is a  Contemporary artist renown for his Surrealist paintings of whimsical Victorian Age midgets. The artist has also worked as an illustrator, comic book artist, and filmmaker.

Labourdette is also known as Turf One. 

The artist began doing street art and graffiti in the mid 1980’s on the streets of Paris, France.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

My favorite works of the artist are his newer portraits made with gold leaf in the background. Perhaps gold leaf might someday be cheap enough to use in street art!
