Inspiration: Les Dompteurs de Papier

Bonjour ! Bonjour !

It's Colour My Monday again, and this week I'd like to introduce you to the beautiful, magical work of two very talented French artists Mathild Gros and Clothilde Staes, a.k.a. Les Dompteurs de Papier.

It's almost impossible to pick a favourite amongst their etchings, 'tis sheer visual poetry, and I am a dreamer who loves to wander through their world.

I hope you'll find the time to browse both portfolios and perhaps be tempted to buy a print or two. Their work is available through their sites, and a small selection is also online at La Maison est en Carton, another very special address of mine.

    1. Pauline, j'adore. Tu m'en as parlé je crois? Je les ai re-découvert en visitant la maison est en carton, qui vend les gravures aussi.
      C'est tellement beau, vraiment tout ce que j'aime.merci!x
