Maïté Grandjouan – BOOOOOOOM! – CREATE * INSPIRE * COMMUNITY * ART * DESIGN * MUSIC * FILM * PHOTO * PROJECTS
Born and at the moment primarily based in Paris, France, artist Maïté Grandjouan has been working as a comics creator and illustrator for the previous eight years. Although diverse in subject material, Grandjouan’s work is tied collectively by a haunting sense of loneliness — “my characters are loners making an attempt to open up a dialogue with others,” she explains. “It’s typically about communication with lifeless folks or simply individuals who have left.”
As an illustrator, Grandjouan enjoys the range of her commissions, spanning between work for the press and audiovisual sectors. Her work is closely influenced by cinema, particularly horror motion pictures. “I gather screenshots, I type them by classes, and I take advantage of them in my work,” she says. “I like foreboding photos but in addition peaceable ones, I typically use brilliant colours to attenuate an eerie ambiance.” In 2016, her first comedian e book, “Fantasma,” was printed by Éditions Magnani, and he or she is at the moment placing the ending touches on a second e book.
