There is something moral to design things that will last for a very long time, for me it is important to visit the modernists. It is always stimulating and joyfull to visit the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou.
Paris-based artist Cassandre Montoriol’s traditional gouache drawings are the toast of the fashion publishing world. Her expressive, hand-drawn aesthetic is reminiscent of travel diaries, fashion illustration and textile design, which is perhaps why her feminine style is so often commissioned within the glossy pages of high-end fashion magazines. Recently Cassandre has been illustrating leafy city scenes and the interiors of shops from tiny, cluttered bookstores to towering, gleaming malls. “I make colourful and figurative work, Cassandre says. “Interior scenes, nature, landscape and people.” bio @Agent Pekka photo @Jean-marc Pau
