Quentin grew up on a beach in the south of France, where he started out drawing simple silhouettes in the sand. His journey as an artist took him to Paris, but those summer vibes of his childhood by the sea have never left his work, and in time he returned to the sea too.
It Started With Drawings In The Sand
Whilst versatile in his mediums and process, he never strays far from a winning formula and themes of sun, the sea and surfing are an ever present in his imagery. He can either create clean digital illustrations or 'digital paintings' - over the years Quentin has developed techniques and textures allowing him to create digital images that look like gouache or acrylic paintings. Whatever the approach, his minimalist characters and beautifully composed patterns, capture a world we'd all like to live in.
When he's not creating beautiful imagery for publishing and advertising clients, he's usually eating blue cheese, or surfing in the gulf of Saint Tropez. An ever growing list of happy client list includes Airbnb, Vespa, Kronenbourg, Magnum and L'Occitane.
