ARTIST French artist Amélie Fontaine (b. 1987) lives and works in Paris. Her illustrations have a distinct graphic style; a simple palette of minimal colours, drawn by hand with pen and paper. I
Inspired by a dreamy, imagined natural history, she creates a strange universe where animal and human relationships are documented in wordless stories. Amélie’s works include drawings for children’s books and newspapers, as well handmade self-published albums. Her designs for ARKET ́s children’s collection are interpretations of migratory birds, leaving Europe in the autumn for warmer wintering grounds.
