The illustrator lapin takes us with him to discover the world. From Istanbul over Venice, Liège, Singapore and Brittany,  to Lisbon, Tokyo until Paris, just follow the line.
For this exhibition the artist has chosen subjects out of the myriad of his sketchbooks and featured them in the form of Icons.
With ink pen, water colour, colour pencil and collage on old ledger paper lapin confronts the kilometers and the distance of the years, far away from the clichés of the tourism industry to share with us the power of a souvenir, the echo of an encounter the furtiveness of a feeling.

Lapin

Lapin (1981) is a french illustrator, an artist, an urban sketcher based in Barcelona and working for magazine, fashion, advertising and editorial.
He can be defined as a "mobile illustrator" who carries his sketchbook and his compact sketching gear to the street, to a bar, to a metro, to Cuba or Hong Kong.
Sketching is a way for him to record every second of his life and feel alive.
Illustration is his first language, which made it possible for him to communicate and interact with the outer World.
Lapin already filled around 170 sketchbooks for the last 14 years and he particularly appreciates sketching on vintage accounting books which he finds in flea markets. According to Lapin a good sketchbook must contain two things ; some doodles of dinosaurs and vintage cars.
Besides capturing his life in his sketchbooks he also teaches art of "sketching" during workshops in universities, in art schools or online and participates exhibitions around the world.
Lapin has published several books, among them are "Paris, je t’aime", "Barcelona original", "Carnet de Bagnoles vol.1 & 2", "Cuba, an 56 de la Révolution", "Lapin au Japon", "Barcelona, Modernisme beyond Gaudi".
