French artist Max Boufathal joined the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Nantes in 2002, where he devised a unique sculptural style. Since graduating in 2007 he’s taken part in exhibits across Europe and has continued to evolve as an artist to watch.

I’ve been inspired by the organically surreal artwork of painter Stephan Balleux since I first stumbled upon it. He’s updated his website with more comprehensive views of his aggressive and ambitious art exhibitions. It’s all very worth a highly inspirational browse.

There are some absolutely wild black and white digital collages in the Behance portfolio of French designer and illustrator Obery Nicolas. The imagery is very interesting and different from a lot of what I’ve seen lately.

Bonjour from Cuypi who is creating some fun, funny and highly accesible illustrations that often put the tongue in the cheek. He also has a flair for hand crafted typography that makes equal use of humor with a bit of a French flair.

Jeanti is an illustrator living and working in Paris (how nice). There’s a kind of 80′s airbrushed kind of thing happing in Jeanti’s work that makes for an extra sugary bit of eye candy.

“Jefta is a young 24-year passion for mixing photography, painting and digital arts.

His work is mainly based on the body that operates in different ways, including encrusting textures or image by dressing.”

Jefta’s photography borders on the surreal psychedelic and it all comes straight out of simple photographs of people. He has an interesting perspective. I’d watch his space for future photography work if I were you.

Tyrsa‘ is Alexis Taieb. He is based in Paris, France and the way he exhibits his talents on his latest website says as much about the creative lifestyle as it does about his project work.

The brilliantly named Fablog is the work of French artist and illustrator Fabien Mense. It encompasses his excellent illustration and concept work for comics and clients and it’s brimming with inspiration for those looking to dabble in illustration (like myself).

Paranoid finally puts the tilt-shift technique to good use or at least a commercial use for this amazing TV spot. Now why didn’t I think of that? Damn.

“The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment – is a developmental spelling – video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font’s proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.”

I kind a just gave up searching the entire blog anymore for reposts since it’s been tough since I started the studio and had a kid just to keep up on the blog so forgive me if this is a repost (because it looks familiar) but the work of French studio My Name is Wendy caught my eye again today. They’ve got some tasty gallery work that really mashes up a lot of different influences from both the design and illustration world and they are good at creating in both realms.

If I may, please allow me to introduce you to ‘The Cat Man’ of Canne by way of Paul Trillo for Real Ideas Studio. I think you will find ‘The Cat Man’ to be a rather interesting and entertaining character as I did. But please note, his cats are not on drugs.

French graphic designer Pierre Vanni has recently updated with all kinds of strange new and very French projects. It’s minimal, brimming with personality and will definitely make you scratch your head in a good way. His portfolio reads more like a dive into the subconscious mind of a French designer than it does like a book of real project work.
