Jean Marc Calvet (born March 23, 1965) is a French artist living in Granada, Nicaragua.[1] Calvet was one of six winners of the VII Biennale of Nicaraguan Arts in 2009 selected to represent Nicaragua at the Biennale of Central America in Panama in 2010.[2]

Calvet was born in Nice, France.[1] With no prior art experience, Calvet said he began painting at the age of 38 following a drug-induced rage while living in Costa Rica.[1][3]

Calvet is the subject of a 2010 documentary by British filmmaker Dominic Allan.[4]
