Billie Jean is a European artist.
Born in the '80s, he studied as an architect.
His pseudonym recalls the title of a famous song by Michael Jackson (1983), that represents the way of living and thinking of the pop artist.
His work is strictly linked to Pop Art, dealing with various issues, particularly social issues.
On his works he reflects the intention to bring art back to the level of political accusation, against persecution and dictatorial regimes, but also as an instrument of externalization of inner sorrow.
The main characteristic of the works of Billie Jean is the clean and bare style, just black and white.
. His works reflect tragedies and discomforts of society, through the simple sketch of the eyes.
As he often likes to say, his artistic influences lie in the 80s Pop Art (Warhol, Basquiat, Keith Haring) and in contemporary street art (especially with the British artist Banksy), that brought him to paint some works on the walls of famous European capitals.
