Jean Santoni
Sandillon, France


I’m completely influenced by the Surrealism movement, Ernst, Breton, Man Ray and Prévert. I combine images originally found in magazines with old postcards or my own pictures. I often use pictures of Corsica, because I want to show its beautiful landscape.


I’m self-taught. Taught by artists like Max Ernst or Prévert, I always would send my own postcards to my friends. Then, step by step, I got into this habit and, encouraged by my family, I created a website to show my work. Otherwise, I teach students with learning disabilities. I’m Corsican, so my country is one of my favourite subjects.
