Paris based illustrator Carine Brancowitz is devoted to music and painting, she studied illustration, screen printing and lithography. Her work, drawn with ball point pen, is a labyrinth of detailed patterns, inked with vibrant hues.
She often draws adolescents as they mill about during all too ordinary situations. Sometimes they’re eating or laughing or sitting or sad. Carine’s precision helps bring her subjects to life. Her work is full of depth as she contrasts detailed subjects against flat backgrounds, perfectly capturing the moods of her teens. Her skill is all in the subtle nuances, the way a thousand tiny lines of hair can be strewn against a girl’s bright eyes.

Thierry Bruet has painted and sculpted for over 35 years. His grand canvases shaped by a consciously classical slant and executed with traditional oil techniques, are witty, satirical and replete with carefully observed details. One side of him tends towards caricature and the grotesque, the other towards elegance and refinement.
Paris based artist Victor Moatti‘s work focuses on simple shapes, complex assembly and dreamy colors.Through his many pieces, a certain palette of color emerges and characterizes his work.The bluish and violet hues are a constant along with playful shadows and cosmic landscapes.
A very 80s and retro futuristic aesthetic is visually a result from his work and the techniques used and the elements present place it out of time and out of any terrestrial place known to man for that matter.
French illustrator Nicolas Dehghani is an artist in Paris who draws and creates animated productions as part of the CRCR collective. He tends to use textured, thick black and gray lines/washes over saturated but limited color palettes. The subjects in his work are confidently stylized and drawn. Dehghani sticks to a limited color palette within his work; it makes it that much more striking.
Parisian artist Alice Wietzel’s illustrations display the perfect combination of unforgiving geometry and soft, organic forms. Her images combine dreamy colors with abstractly shaped people and objects whilst avoiding harsh, dark outlines. Wietzel allows various colors to sit next to one another in perfect harmony, leading to dreamlike images that we never want to stop looking at.
Tours and Paris based Fabien Mérelle is a highly talented and emerging young French artist who creates delicately detailed drawings in black ink and watercolor. Although Mérelle’s drawings appear at first sight realistic in their rendering, they in fact depict outworldly scenarios, unsettling situations and dream-like occurrences.
These renderings, simultaneously absurd, humorous, ironic and cruel, weave their own tapestry of tales and legends, blurring the line between what has been written and what our memory has forged.
Paris based photographer Nicolas Rivals has realized the series ‘La Línea Roja’ — a visual study of geometry and form in dialogue with nature.

Paris-based art director and illustrator Inès Longevial creates lots of fantastic work across many mediums, but mostly paintings.

Photographer, Pierre Carreau’sAquaViva series effortlessly carries the range of the human condition in wave-like forms. Carreau’s images of waves, each distinct from the other, captures a flash in time that is often unseen by the human eye. Carreau suspends each wave to expose its life, feeling and purpose, similar to the expression of emotional states in humans, such that feelings are universal, but the expression through an individual is what makes the experience unique. One cannot help but feel the formlessness of the bountiful ocean and its kinetic energy thrusting to shore.
Carreau describes the goal of his work is to, “transfer the waves’ energy to those who view them. Water is amazing, it has no color, but through reflection and refraction it can possess all of them, the entire spectrum of light.”
