Desfougeres Charlène – Francia
I went to art school « École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Bourges » in France ( I am french ), from 2007 to 2012. And now I live in Paris. My office/studio is my home ! I made an internship in Brooklyn in 2011 with a graphic designer, Lisa Larson Walker. After this internship ( in 2012 ) I participated with several illustrators in a project of illustrations with gif ( « corpse fabrique » : http://corpsefabrique.tumblr.com/post/18792416372/head-charlene-desfougeres-body-claire ), on the initiative of the illustrator Josh Cochran. I made a series of drawings ( > theme : “Aliens “) for the collective ” art word “,in New York again, in 2013. (http://cargocollective.com/artword/ALIENS) I participate regularly in small collective projects, in publishing mainly ( for “PlisanSlits” for example, in 2012 : http://augusteetclaire.com/2012/10/lart-en-plis-chez-plisanslits/ ),I present my work in festivals ( like « Fanzine ! » / > october-november/ Paris ). My illustrations often represent food ( for me that’s an important source of inspiration ). I like to represent graphically “fat” “sticky” and not really appetizing food – with pastel colors, simple shapes.
