Lapin

Une année sans été
Enola Gay

380

Original drawing part of the exhibition « une année sans été » at the Gallery Espace Beaurepaire, Paris in March 2015

For this illustrations, lapin focussed on his line. He explored the quality of the line by changing the scale. The reframing of the figurative drawings taken out of his sketchbooks imparts to the drawings a new meaning.

The maze of lines is like a rhythm where the eyes get lost.

The referent sketch to this original drawing was done at the Air & Space Museum in Washington DC. Enola Gay is the Boeing B29 Superfortress that dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan.

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".
