Paul Cox is a French artist/designer, whose works branch into many different disciplines. He has deigned posters, art directed for theatres, made children’s books, exhibited at galleries, and more. I admire his ability translate his look and feel into many different types of mediums. I’m a fan of his playful colors and innocent shapes.

A few days ago, I had a chance to listen to him speaking about his creative process at the event <Recontre avec Paul Cox> at la Gaîté lyrique. It was interesting to find out that his visually naive and organic outcomes usually have a complex backstory. He often creates a complex system or almost like a puzzle to realize his works. It was great to see many of his work during the talk as his work is not widely distributed over internet.

One thing from his talk that particularly stood out for me is that he draws everyday for at least two hours. Something I’d like to follow.

Some of these drawings are exhibiting right now at mymonkey gallery till April 22, 2016. If you are near Nancy, France, definitely drop by.
