say hi to_ Twin Pix
As most great creatives, curators, entrepreneurs and designers that I find - I found Twin Pix on good ole Instagram. In fashion we can easily see trends circulate, reinvent themselves and designers, get inspired, re-appropriate or downright steal ideas from the past. Twin Pix is a platform which highlights the same likeness in design throughout recent history in specific furniture and design pieces.
When I found out that the mastermind behind Twin Pix was Paris based we met up for a coffee to discuss furniture, trends, publishing and more. With their wealth of knowledge and database of furniture design, heart and history in Paris - I thought Twin Pix would make the perfect Design Ambassador to Paris!
Here goes for Twin Pix's first monthly roundup of French designers, events, stores, links etc in French and English. Bienvenue Twin Pix!
Né en 1972, vit et travaille à Lyon. Diplômé des Beaux-Arts de St-Étienne en Bien que son travail soit éminemment photographique, il se décrit davantage comme un artiste qui réfléchit par le moyen de la photographie. Comme il le dit lui meme « Je ne me suis jamais senti photographe, je collecte simplement des choses dans la rue, dans la presse, des détritus et des fragments d’images. »Observer le travail de Pierre-Olivier Arnaud, c’est d’abord se confronter à une masse grise d’images dont il est parfois difficile de discerner le sujet
EN_ Born in 1972, Pierre Olivier Arnaud lived and worked in Lyon. He graduated with a diploma in Fine Arts from St.Etienne and although is work is primarily photographic, he describes himself more as an artist who reflects his ideas through the medium of photography. As he puts it himself, "I have never felt like a photographer, I simply collect things in the street, in the news, fragments of images."
When dissecting and observing the work of Arnaud, it is sometimes difficult to completely discern the subject from his gray mass of images.
