Jean Merhi


 

“Looking at the bottom of my black coffee cup, I see the face of a French Phoenician, a Parisian Phoenician.

Jean is a lover of friendship and generosity.

Elusive, he catches the attention, picks up feelings and keeps everything in

his memory: films, plays, photography, features.

He is an unclassifiable artist in the image of his multifaith and multicultural homeland,

“first to be there against all odds. ”

Christophe Girard – Mayor of the 4th Arrondissement of Paris (Former Deputy at the City Hall of Paris – Charged for Culture)
