Jean-Baptiste Launay, better known as Jisbar, is a French pop-street artist born in 1989. He lives and works between Paris and Lisbon. Jisbar is famous worldwide for being the first ever artist to reinterpret classical art masterpiece figures such as Mona Lisa or Warhol with his personal style of pop and street art. This striking blend of influences shaped a clear and unique identity that inspires a lot of artists and brands such as BMW, Armani, LG across the world today. Jisbar's work is shown in many galleries all over the world such as San Francisco, Gold Coast, Teipei, Venice, Paris and London. His artwork was also collected by well-known museums such as the Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi or the National Museum for the History of Immigration in Paris. His best known work is also the revival of the Mona Lisa which was exhibited in the collection of the Prime Minister of Luxembourg.

The work "Oreo Freedom Dino" features a combination of René Magritte's classic piece "Man in a Bowler Hat" and other street-style elements. The artist thinks that this blend of diverse elements represents the accumulation of various cultures. Although these elements have no direct connection to each other, everyone can create their own story through the artwork.
