Jana & JS

Austrian/French

Jana & JS­­­ are a street art duo based in Salzburg, Austria composed of Franco-Austrian couple Jana Balluch and Jean-Sebastion Philippe. Their distinctive art practice involves turning photographs- typically portraits- into stencils which are transferred to recycled materials such as metal, glass, canvas or wood. These materials lend themselves to the duo’s subject matter: a blend of human connection, architectural urban spaces, and the vulnerability inherent to the ephemeral quality of each. Through their unique art practice, Jana & JS aim to capture the feeling and esthetic of both urban environments and the people who shape them. In addition to creating artwork in the streets of major cities worldwide, Jana & JS have exhibited in gallery shows in Germany, Austria, France, America, Israel and England.
