Pierre Mornet is a young French illustrator who paints using acrylic and oil paints. He is so obscure that the only artist's bio I could find was a short blurb in his mother tongue. Bless my four years of schoolgirl French! I could actually read and comprehend it.
Last week, I found his a piece of his work on tumblr (where I find everything) and immediately became obsessed. Which is saying something considering what a Matisse binge I had been on the previous week. I love the colors he uses, his repeated use of poppies, and his beautiful subjects with their faraway stares and glossy 40s movie starlet hair.
