”The printed poster is still a very exciting and powerful tool for graphic designers. To my mind, together with book design, this is the holy grail of our profession. The printed poster is a great way to transmit ideas and singular images in the public space. In most cases, public space is invaded by horrible commercial ads or very lazy stuff. But occasionally one can find a poster that stimulates the eye and helps to re-enchant the urban space. It is for this reason that the printed poster is indispensable.”
Born in 1983, Antonin Faurel studied at Nantes’s Fine Art School. He works mainly in the cultural field. He is also active in contemporary art, with Short, a small art centre based in Nantes.
