A Remarkable Painter
Jehan Legac began work as a photographer at age 14 when he landed a job shooting photos of cats on Paris rooftops. In his late-teens he dutifully joined the French Navy and became a private photographer for Admiral Philippe de Gaulle, son of the great Charles de Gaulle, a stint that allowed the young artist to navigate from the North Pole to tropical islands, to roam foreign city streets with his camera and gain new eyes into the world.
The artist later returned to Paris where he began a successful design business and was able to apply the technology of 3D imaging to his design work.
At 28 he gave up his “conservative” life in search of the delicious decadence of New York City where the enterprising young Parisian used his Nikon to mingle with models and pseudo-celebs. Legac also lived, worked, mixed and mingled in cities like Miami, Florida and Caracas, Venezuela.
Legac eventually opened a studio in the hip Paris neighborhood of Neuilly where he settled in to paint and photograph, calling on color, chrome and curves to produce the cyber-sensual, multimedia masterpieces that are decidedly Legac.
Inspired by his own erotic longing, Legac blends and fuses his lifelong influences of photography, design and computers to create works that are evocative and sexy, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, but always hopelessly in awe of the power of woman.

Shortly after Jehan had started his website, in march 2001, he found unexpected promotion when Mystique Magazine and Hitboss, amongst a number of others that are already too many to list here, gave him exposure that drew a lot of people towards his website.
Within three months he had over 40.000 visitors and that was only the beginning. I was one of those people that entered the "Site of the Day" link at Mystique Magazine, which has grown to become my "home of beauty". The links between two apparently different sites, an erotic magazine and a digital artist, obviously were the "mystique" of Eros and the original, loving and artful approach of the feminine beauty. But let's draw our attention towards Legac's side of it.
As soon as you start watching those "finalizations of his inspiration" you'll start detecting preferences for several of them and a, however hidden, desire to obtain or possess your favorite one(s). Even if you're not the common, potential art collector.
If you like to express what you feel by watching those imaginative creations, Jehan Legac offers the possibility to comment it in any way you like, or even dislike.
Be prepared to find a dream world of well-balanced coloring and shapes that pays tribute to Venus and Eros, as well as the sensual and erotic feminine shape and emotion, incidentally combined with the male erotic presence. Even his more "pornographic" art should be mentioned differently: More like "erographic" or "erogital art". He made several of his artworks in different color variations, but normally the one he selects for "first look" is the ultimate version, with the most powerful color-balance.
It would surprise me if you wouldn't find at least one or two of his creative products to developing a very special feeling within you. Consider your entry in this site to be like stepping into another man's dream world. I never regretted one single entry, checking upon yet another series of new "heart and soul" expressions.
Enter Jehan Legac's fantasy and let yourself be surprised by the "mystique" and sensuality of his digital creativeness, which is greatly inspired by his lovely wife Thea, being "recreated" in various ways throughout Jehan's complete works. Apart from her there's also some more famous females to be found reshaped and I would not be the least surprised if in the near future many of them would lineup to become part of Jehan Legac's legacy.

Jehan Legac is a new breed of artist whose main inspiration is the computer and whose only framework is the Internet. Bordering on 80's style disco-modernism, Legac's electronic art transposes Web sensations to beach-life sense.
Very influenced by his adoptive island of Ibiza, where this Parisian has been living for the past 10 years, his paintings reflect the busy buzz of 21st century networks. His colors flash electronic speed, yet with a typical Balearic touch of sun, youth and neon - which makes his work particularly distinctive.
The very first time you see the beautiful faces and bodies of Legac's electronic fetish babes, your heart is bound to suddenly change to fast mode. You'll simply think that you've never seen a girl half as cute. And wait till you catch a glimpse of the others!
These creatures are information age goddesses in the highest.
Come and share the female ideals of a real life Internet connoisseur: Mermaid eyes that cyber-mesmerize, hair like sensuous rivers of data, code line long legs, hardware thighs no one can walk away from, pixel-born curvaceous hips, erotic Linux body language to communicate, plus incredible asses that would make even Tron drool like a weakling.
Not to mention next generation lingerie and colors that are way too loud, as if to make a statement against millennium gloom.
Legac's tantalizing soft porn, software-born top-models will sweep you off your feet with the sweetest sex stories, expressing sensitivity that goes beyond the human spectrum, beyond even their creator's grasp.
There is only one painter like Jehan Legac in the whole wild world. It's impossible not to fall in love with his e-women! (by Michael Korvin)
