Marc Le Rest

Born in 1970 - France


Born in 1970, Marc Le Rest is a French painter. He started his career as a textile designer for Hermès, Armani, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Sonia Rykiel. He then moved to the United States, where he worked for the biggest editors of furnishing fabrics. Today, he dedicates completely to his passion, painting.

Throughout the years, the artist has developed a unique universe, strongly inspired by Flemish portraits of the XVI and XVIIth century. His pieces depict a whole bestiary, chimpanzees, cheetahs, gazelles combed according to the styles of these epochs. Feathers, lace, collars, pearls and ribbons dress the heads of these animals. A constrast between animal and refinement, between nature and culture which get on just perfectly, showing that the differences between them, may not be that big.
