At a time when fashion turns to art for art's sake, he creates monumental compositions, often inspired by the tragic circumstances of current events, in the tradition of Goya. He organizes extraordinary exhibitions, in the most unlikely places, which become platforms for his vehement attacks against the pre-existing order and the defenders of abstract art.

Self-taught, Lorjou cultivates his art alone. Often labeled an expressionist, he demonstrates a great lyric quality, born from his raw sensibility, and a capacity to turn banal images into dream-like reality. His gift for colors is innate, his talent for design beyond compare. Lorjou is a complete creator: painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramist. He is undeniably one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
