N° 10 : TINOU LE JOLY SÉNOVILLE
Tinou, with her poetic mind, lively curiosity and sense of childlike wonder is our tenth portrait.
As an illustrator and artist navigating between different creative territories, Tinou’s work is as varied as her creative sources of inspiration. Her delicately poetic and magical world is a play of light where the colors are vibrant, the lines are sharp and the shapes are dancing.
From fashion to children’s books and from textile to communication, it is by browsing through Tinou’s artwork that you realize the multiplicity and diversity of her creative disciplines, where her chromatic palette, refined line drawings and complex compositions are astonishing. Amongst her multiple skills, Tinou favours the technique of « decoupage » using gouache painted on cut-out tissue paper, reconciling the fragile and harmonious balance between form and color.
As Tinou herself say’s : ” The gesture of cutting, unites painting, color and line, finding the fluidity of the brush by drawing with a pair of simple scissors. ”
Tinou has worked with selected institutions worldwide such as Comedie Française, Amnesty International and Museo Del Prado just to mention a few. She has also worked for many prestigious brands such as Swarovski, Dior and Louis Vuitton.
