“The key for me is the balance between the tenuous and the solid elements. You need to create some paths for the eyes to travel along.

Quentin grew up on a beach in the South of France, where he started out drawing simple silhouettes in the sand. Today he lives and works in Paris, where those summer vibes of his childhood by the sea continue to haunt his colourful work. Through his minimalist characters and beautifully composed patterns, he captures a world of bikini-clad women riding crocodiles, surfers in harmony with sharks, and gardens of crisp, juicy watermelons.
