Last year, Little White Lies – the independent UK magazine, got in touch about an exhibition at the Kemistry gallery that would celebrate some of the most iconic 70’s films.
The idea was simple: Each illustrator could choose which movie to give homage to by creating a portrait of the main protagonist in a magazine cover style.
I was super excited to be part of the show and couldn’t decide between Carrie and Cabaret. Very different vibes but both super graphic worlds.
I did both and finally decided for Cabaret as the most iconic one.
A couple of months ago, the guys from LWL got back in touch with great news: the show was going up again, for a month in May in the Parisian iconic concept store named Colette.
They had selected a few of the artist from the original London show as well as commissioning their own selection of artists. I was eager to see what they had done and took the time to pop in last week during a short Paris break.
The Woody Allen portrait from Craig Redman (part of the original show) remains my favorite of all but I have to admit that this new superman illustration from Varham Muratyan put a big smile on my face ; )
Seeing my work in Paris was a nice feeling of home-coming.
