hello!

Flavien here. Thank you for stopping by!

This website is a way for me to start a new conversation with you. Here you can see more of what I do, may it be traditional or digital art.

I am a Paris-based French artist, but I have been lucky enough to travel a little, and live abroad for a few years. As you will probably notice while going through some of my illustrations, I have lived in Japan for some time. This period greatly influenced my arts practice, and pushed me to experiment with local mediums such as  sumi (墨) ink, and gansai (顔彩), which is a Japanese equivalent to watercolour.

Through my drawings, on paper or elsewhere, you will find a synthesis of things I am very fond of: storytelling, classical and children book illustration, graphic design, and typography. I also tend to embrace darker ideas, and love drawing monsters.
