In this handheld photo-essay featuring some of the imaginative creations of Turf One, Paul 107 presents a brief portrait of the artist in a collection of beautiful, full color photographs. Turfizm: The Selected Works of Jean “Turf One” Labourdette, focuses on some of the intricate so-called “pop surrealist” works that reflect Turf’s acute attention to character detail, and an almost playful fascination with life and death. The Sun Shines In: A few days in the studio with Jean Labourdette, is a study of his creative process, offering a quiet look into the studio environment where most of these elaborate works are created over time.
Since moving to Montreal from Paris in 2001, Jean “Turf One” Labourdette has become a quietly revered, internationally known talent, evolving from his graffiti-based roots into a skillful and dedicated multidisciplinary artist, currently concentrating on painting. This book is one of the many collaborations between Turf and writer/photographer Paul Labonté and/or Paul 107, steeped in mutual respect and real friendship.
