Cecile's Happy Life

Cécile is an artist of Parisian origin. Parisian, architect by training, she has a real love for artistic creation and the plastic arts.

Since 2018, she has devoted herself entirely to illustration and art. Active in the press field, she has worked for Télérama, Citizen Jazz, Dimanche Studio, Jazz Magazine.
She also works for major brands such as AMI and the chocolate brand Le Chocolat des Français. It is a pleasure to count her among our artists!

Cécile's Happy STYLE

Cécile's illustrations are characterised by a search for simplicity and pure geometry. With their dynamic and tense compositions, enhanced by flat areas of bright colours, her visuals are always in motion.
Cécile expresses herself on different media: digital, acrylic paint, Indian ink, hand-drawn and hand screen-printed. For the prints of her digital works, she makes the art prints herself in high quality inkjet for small formats, very concerned about the final result and the happiness of her customers!

Why we LOVE Cécile

Cécile seduced us with her pop and fashion universe, creating works that are both modern and trendy. She is an artist who could not be funkier!
Her illustrations remind us of the "revolutionary and visionary" fashion designer André Courrèges, an icon of the 1960s with his miniskirts, architectural cuts and futuristic style.
Let the blue, his favourite inspirational colour, electrify you.

The Happy Funky PORTRAIT of Cécile

♥ Do you remember your first aesthetic shock?
My first aesthetic shock, I couldn't really choose.

But my last aesthetic shock, without hesitation: the exhibition of photographs by the Anglo-Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie. These women and men dressed in various brightly coloured patterns, and the different settings.

♥ The artist you would like to meet? What would you say to her?
Yayoi Kusama and tell her that I admire and envy her boldness and ideas.

What is your favourite colour? What does it inspire?
Electric blue. This colour is the colour of the sky and the sea. I was lucky enough to grow up with a view of the sea, and I miss it very much. Blue is a colour that makes me feel good and inspires me with nature, freedom, "infinity", depth.

♥ Which museum gives you the greatest emotion? Why do you ask?
The Centre Pompidou in Paris is the museum I like to go to the most. I'm a fan of its unique and original architecture, as well as its location, in the middle of the chic alleys of the capital. And inside, it's a very spacious and pleasant place to walk through. I love the large open spaces.

♥ Which piece of art would you buy without hesitation if you had an unlimited budget?
A painting of a swimmer in a pool, by David Hockney. An explosion of freshness and light.

♥ In which city do you feel happiest? Why do you think so? Share your 3 favourite addresses.
Paris: my hometown, where I didn't grow up, but where I came back to finish my architecture studies, and I started illustration there. The city of culture, fashion and art. A cosmopolitan, modern and lively city. 3 favourite addresses: Le 104, La Gare Jazz, le Point Éphémère.

♥ What book keeps you up all night?
Barjavel's novel Ravage, or Brecht Evens' sublime comics.

♥ What are your biggest sources of inspiration?
Women, fashion, music, film, architecture, you name it.

♥ What's the funkiest thing you've done in your life?
Playing trombone on a ferry in Greece, and in a moving metro train in Athens, with my old band from the Paris-la-Villette school of architecture.

♥ What is your definition of happiness?
