illustrator and designer
His limited linework is reminiscent of the drawings of Klimt, Rodin and Matisse rolled into one.
Born in Annecy, a city in the French Alps, illustrator and designer Frédéric Forest has already worked for Cartier, as well as the Adidas Advanced Design Studio in Italy, where he designed for the brand’s high-end sports shoes. Growing up in a very women-centric family, the artist focuses on the silhouettes of women’s bodies which are seductive in a minimal kind of way. Inspired by the beautiful landscape of the French Alps, the curves of the bodies seem to implicate the outlines of mountains. Nature has always occupied an important place in Frédéric’s life. His physical link with forms of nature, perfect curves, can be discovered in all of his works.
