Clément Thoby

Cément Thoby is only 29 years old and yet he is already a virtuoso of grease pencil, coloured pencil and oil pastel...

After studying animation at the EMCA in Angoulême, he worked on large animation productions, but above all he likes to immortalise the landscapes and wild compositions that he discovers during his travels.

Fascinated by the light, shadows and textures of trees, he first followed his own steps, even though Félix Valloton and the Japanese artist Kazuo Oga, DA of the Studio Ghibli films, inspired him in his art.

With his striking colours, which are closer to impressionist painting than to illustration, he likes to create a path to the unknown, a mysterious, peaceful and timeless atmosphere that makes you want to go there.
