Nom Joseph Vignes
Date 1920 — 2007
Pays France

Joseph Vignes, called Pepe Vignes, was born in november 1920 in Paris. He is the second of a five children family headed by a cooper father. He was successively accordion in popular dances, singer, and then cooper, moving a lot he eventually settled in Elne (West-Pyrenees) where he lived until his death.

In 1960, when he was 40 years, he started to draw for fun, with ball point pen and color pens. His favorite themes are flowers, boats, fishes, cars, planes, trains, rugby balls and hearts shapes that we can find in almost all his drawings. As he has a myopic view he draws with his face very close to the sheet. He also uses cardboards and brown paper that he decorates with felt pen in a way to not losing time at sharping his pencils. 

Discovered by Claude Massé in 1974 – who dedicated an article to Pepe in the Fascicule de l’art brut n°11 -, Pepe Vignes pile up his drawings in closets, under beds and cabinets. From 1971 to 1980, he produced 3000 “good points” addressed to those he loves. The highly personal universe that he created is full of poetry and strangeness, like the Primitive painters.
