Jean Jansem was born in 1920 in Seuleuze (Asia Minor). He spent his childhood in Salonika, Greece, and arrived in France at the age of 11 where he started painting.

He took evening courses in the Montparnasse quarter in Paris and graduated from the Arts Dératifs in 1938.

He often visited the atelier of "La Grande Chaumière" and exhibited his first oil painting at the "Salon des Indépendants" in 1939.

During numerous trips to Greece, Spain, Italy and the French province, he prepared the important themes of his exhibitions such as: the fishermen and the children of Greece, the children and the houses of Spain, the bullfighting, in Italy the landscapes, the processions, the italian markets, Venice the Laguna, the mascarade parades, the carnavals and in France the village marketplaces and the landscapes.

Since 1951: Jansem has held exhibitions of his work in France (Paris, Amiens, Nantes, Avignon, Marseille, Nancy, Toulouse, Cannes, Mulhouse, Bayonville, Clermont-Ferrand) and in other countries (Rome, Palermo, Lausanne, New-York, Chicago, Palm-Beach, London, Brussels, Montréal, Tokyo, Osaka, Beirut, Sao Paolo, Johannesburg, Germany, Art Expo New York and Los Angeles.
