Lea Larrieu’s exhibition: it’s a zoo in here!

December 14, 2016 / February 15, 2017

Talented illustrator Lea Larrieu will exhibit her work at the French Institute from 14 December till 15 February. Come and discover Lea's beautiful illustrations and poetic world where animals rule: for children and adults alike!

Lea Larrieu is a young illustrator from France. She was born in the outskirts of Paris, in the town of Fontenay-aux-Roses. Lea studied art in two prestigious Paris art schools: École Estienne and École de Condé. The exhibition will present her most vivid illustrations. And not only do we display her work but also the French Institute's teachers will give lectures and organise languages workshops on drawing and art. Lea created her first illustration when she was still studying. Now she works as a graphic designer in Paris and collaborates with prestigious publishing houses, advertising firms and PR agencies. Lea's creations portray animals in a multitude of activities and roles. Big and small, fluffy and bold. They talk, argue, have fun together. They are busy discovering the world with no humans around! You'll fall head over heels for her unique style: simple shapes, often in black and white, giving a lot of attention to "facial" expressions and not to the smallest details (these could become distracting). Last but not least, in February 2017 Lea's first book entitled "What's going on?" is going to be published in France. Needless to say Lea has a bright future ahead of her!
