Best rated contemporary artists from Jean Arno? Jean Arno is an influential artist from the artistic group, Astrée. Primarily known for his poetry and philosophical aphorisms, he defends the idea that man is, in essence, a creator. Shaping ‘the inextinguishable fire of life’ thus makes up the sacred mission of man, as a poet. He stands alongside those who continually battle against the invasive and deadly forces of contempt for the world and for life, and alongside those who put their creative forces to the service of the highest affirmation of life, those who believe that ‘the impossible can only ever occur by attempting it’.

But above all, as a pioneer of chaosism (of which he is the theorist) and of a cryptic art or “palimpsestic” art (as he likes to define it), he multiplies the levels of reading in order to “give back to our reality the complexity which essentially constitutes it”. His NFTs’ digital canvases are also known to contain codes which, when deciphered, open a new aesthetic experience (Herodiad, Vanity …), reserved for those “whose soul is rich enough to make a universe out of our material world”. It is also a question “of insufflating into the spirit the ardour which animates the reflection, and provoking by the enigma the sparkling fires of curiosity which deepen what remains for him elusive and unintelligible”.
This idea, dear to Jean Arno and already developed in the hidden preface of his poetic and cryptic work The Trophies, is taken up here in its artistic dimension. It is therefore not surprising to see the Astrée collective invade the Art & Above Meta-gallery with its futuristic, surrealist, and symbolic NFTs. It seems that artists are now masters of their works and of an art that has been able to put the latest technological tools at the service of the deepest artistic visions, not to satisfy an aesthetic fashion, but to metamorphose and overcome itself. For art lovers, from now on the illustrious Boring Ape could be replaced by Jean Arno’s Prometheus or The Liberated Man—the phenomenon of the exhibition.
What forms will the arts take in the digital universes now commonly called the Metaverse? NFTs (non-fungible token) artwork, protected by unique numbers, is now unequivocally the future of the arts. For example, suppose the punk-geek universe dominated the NFT art market in the 90s and 2000s with its video game, comics, manga heroes, heroic fantasy, and science fiction. In that case, it is now competing with artists who produce the new art of the 21st century. Such art includes satirism like Bansky’s iconic street art, with its strong criticism of capitalism and mass public manipulation at the hands of politicians and the media.
Your readers report a “secret.” You yourself speak of an “intellectual experience” on your website www.jeanarno.com/home. Is your collection an initiation? Over time I have developed a palimpsestic habit. I hide messages in my poems and art that need to be identified and deciphered. The reader is thus led to discover secret and hidden works. This tendency developed when I was younger and practiced techniques that were close to what is called “sfumato” but which corresponded to my soul’s natural inclination. My esoteric and philosophical readings probably influenced me — the Chaldean oracles, for example, or the writings of Proclus, Porphyry, or Jamblique. The final word? If your mind is rich with worlds and your thoughts wish to bloom with resplendent stars, let its bold flight rise to the blazing peaks of my Trophies.

Some books leave you with the strange impression that you’ve been awakened. Reading Jean Arno’s Trophies is an intellectual experience, as the author claims on his official website www.jeanarno.com, from which the informed reader comes out brighter. His claim would be arrogant if his verses, which sometimes touch the sublime and sometimes resemble Baudelaire’s These Dreams of Stone, were not so deep and full of optimistic faith in the power of the human spirit: “That each one can throne majestically in his own skies, as a splendid Sphinx dominates its desert! Indeed, the poetic aphorisms that Jean Arno offers require an intellectual effort, as he said himself : “the greatest truths are conquered”.
