Niels Stoltenborg

Like many children who grew up in the countryside, Niels Stoltenborg was amazed by plants, an inexhaustible source of fascination and surprise. He remembers telling his grandmother that he wanted to become a gardener.

He did not become a gardener. He studied photography, graphic design and drawing. As a freelancer, he was a photography and production assistant. In the 90s, he set up a studio in Istanbul for advertising and magazines. Today, he devotes himself entirely to his artistic and photographic creation.

In Vegetalism, Niels Stoltenborg's childlike fascination with the earth emerges again. His work starts from an intuition: the colors and shapes of fruits and vegetables have both a potential for abstraction and something to tell us.



Marion Livran is a Parisian artist. Initially trained in engraving, she fell in love with linocut, which she has been practicing for the past 5 years.

Very sensitive to the body, to what it gives to see, to touch, to feel, to its movements, its density, its composition... she tries to capture the fragility of this envelope and the trace that our emotions, our lives leave in it, on the surface and in depth.

It is these moments of epiphanies that fascinate her, these waves that break in us and make us come alive.

"I like to be interested in the invisible, in what sets in motion or what freezes. The body has answers even before they reach our consciousness (if we know how to listen to it). It is these moments of epiphanies that fascinate me, these waves that surge through us and make us alive.


Bastien Figuié aka UNIKO, is a young art director trained in design in the south of France, in love with minimalist branding, beautiful letters and pure forms. After having worked in various Parisian communication agencies in the luxury and corporate sectors, it is quite natural that he wished to widen his field of action and take the plunge... to finally present his illustrations. Minimalist, joyful, sometimes abstract or sometimes typographic, Bastien's work keeps as a red thread the frank and assumed colours and the energy that comes out. Bastien Figuié works today as a freelance art director.


Piment Martin

Behind Piment martin is Marion BEGUE, graphic designer and illustrator.

She has big green eyes and an untamable mane. Her main subjects: objects, plants and this little totem woman who looks like her. Marion goes from still life to very lively illustrations where she puts forward the woman and her body as an ode to femininity. She likes above all the banal scenes that we forget to look at, like a vase on a table, and represents in her illustrations the small theatres and details of everyday life, their poetic and humorous sides.

Her illustrations are inspired by her many plants, flea markets full of quirky objects and lucky finds, and the trips she has made.

His latest series on the breads of various Parisian bakeries, done in pastels, explores our link with this essential food of the French diet; its history, its craft.

Benjamin Schwartz also hopes to partner and collaborate with international social justice organisations that focus on food waste and access to quality food on projects that blend humanitarianism and art.

Through bright and soft colours and rounded shapes, Lucile wishes to convey a message of optimism, to make people smile, to brighten up a day and to draw attention to the importance of others and of nature.

Her creative techniques range from digital design to acrylic painting and ink drawing. As far as printing is concerned, she prefers to use traditional and ecological techniques (risography, silk-screen printing, linocut).

Victory Orth

Victoire Orth is a young French photographer from Lyon living in Paris. Passionate about photography for several years, it was during a trip to Brussels that she met Gil Rigoulet and became his assistant. A collaboration that turned into a beautiful story of friendship and that today leads Gil to sponsor his assistant in order to make her work better known.

"Met by chance in life, a glance, words, in a draught of the main square of Brussels, Victoire, as long as the eye, the film camera on her hip, the fresh eye of these 18 years old does not care about the meanders of a questioning. She poses to herself, looks into her sensitivity and explores this natural light that brushes against the skin like an intensity of having to live, her world is her proximity, her look is her consciousness of building between graphics and emotion. She is hungry for demands and goes fast...
Victoire has been assisting me for 8 months, a joy! "

Gil Rigoulet

Colours are important to Clara, and traditional tools such as oil paint and pastels allow her to express herself fully.

Les Canailles

Created in 2016 by Diane Marissal and Jérémie Leblanc, Les Canailles is a duo where the literary and artistic influences of one mix with the visual and graphic culture of the other. Whether it's illustrations, silkscreens or publishing, collage is at the heart of their four-handed practice.

"Our plastic universe, at the crossroads of these fields, mixes popular culture, graphic design and abstraction to explore the narrative and poetic character of images. Faced with an ambient pessimism, we want to reinstate a relationship of curiosity, fiction and dialogue with everyone, young and old.

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.

Virginie Cognet

Virginie Cognet began her career as a fashion designer, then became an art director, before launching herself into illustration. Her colourful and poetic line is charged with a naive lightness. We find in it everything she loves: freedom, plants, gardening and books...

Sophie Brice

Sophie Brice is passionate about typography, paper and travel. In 2015, she discovered Amsterdam and its unique architecture. But where many are captivated by the colourful facades, she sees the intertwining lines. Fascinated by the symmetry of the buildings, she drew her first silk-screen print.

From then on, each journey will be the subject of a graphic interpretation reflecting a keen sense of observation. Everything is meticulously designed to fit together and reflect the essence of the city or country illustrated.
