Jacques Decaux came to art through calligraphy, the route of the traditional Chinese scholar. He became fascinated with the written Chinese characters that are a much shape and form as alphabet. In creating a body of abstract art, Decaux uses the forms of calligraphy, often in combination with his hand-made paper, to create works that are both amusing and intellectually stimulating.With his wry sense of humor, one might see a composition with the Chinese character for "danger" perched at the edge of a cliff; three females beside the character for "pandemonium;" or "prisoner" next to a stick figure of a man inside a circle. In his series "Neolithic Cave Paintings, " Decaux used modified forms of the earliest styles of "zhuan shu" (seal script) calligraphy to create pictographic stories, each accompanied by its own ingenious tale. A student of Buddhism and Daoism, Decaux's work was influenced by the orderly, rhythmic belief system of Daoism - a philosophy that harmonizes man's movements with the cosmos and teaches man to sit back, relax, and flow with the elements. Born in Normandy in 1918, Decaux became a visiting professor at Taiwan's Chinese Cultural University in 1976 and was a longstanding member of the Taipei Art Guild. He passed away at the age of 85 in Keelung, Taiwan.
