French mixed media designer known as Coco de Paris, using pages of antique French magazines produced almost 200 years ago, draws beautiful vintage-like images on them. His work allows you to purchase a piece of France’s history period of Napoleon Bonaparte that’s still in “l’air du temps” (the times). Every creation is unique, it involves hand painting in acrylic on a different page of the antique paper including the beauty signs through time (spots, corner bends, uneven prints, old grainage, wear and tear, etc).

“My world is a fantasy, to create my prints I use a blender: I put inside my own original artwork, some vintage ephemera, some illusion, some reality, some past, some future, and a lot of imagination. I switch on the blender and you know what comes out of it? Coco de Paris! Amazing, no? The name of the blender? It’s an original “Art School” blender”.
