FRÉDÉRIC FOREST Frédéric Forest grew up in Annecy, in the French Alps, and later came to Paris to study industrial design at ENSCI/Les Ateliers. He started selling his drawings on the streets of New York City, but nowadays people from all over the world know his name. The Paris-based artist has his own design studio together with Clémentine Giaconia, with clients such as Hermès, Adidas and Cartier. Besides his artwork for big brands, Forest is well known for his drawings, especially the ones of the female body. With 110k followers on Instagram and more than 1000 people tattooing his illustrations all over their bodies, women have always been a main inspiration for Forest as he loves their attitude, their gesture, their pose and their shapes which is clearly portrayed within his illustrations.
ALICE WILSON Having discovered a talent and passion for art and design at a very young age. My love for learning, creating and taking on challenges in all art practices has solidified my interior design practice. I feel Interior design allows me to challenge the norm, creating the best experience for other people. Changing limitations into advantages, and developing projects to their full potential. Having come from a fine art background, I am interested in the relationship between interior design, art and illustration, and how each can influence and/or inspire one another. Forming an integral part of my engagement with interior design practice.
I felt by incorporating drawings of my own it portrays my knowledge and understanding of the human figure and its anatomy. Which I have used to enhance the interior by using inspired shapes, curvatures and particular materials within the space.

Considered to be self-taught, which includes the intensive study of all kinds of anatomic books in order to gain a better understanding of the human body, as well as several books about drawing techniques used in art. Any kind of photograph, drawing or video is always more appealing to Tardy, as he is dyslectic. Very much attatched to creating work with just one line, what started out as a sketching technique, turned slowly but surely became a personal style.
