Biography
Loic Bellier is a graphic artist born in Marseille in 1971, passionate about the sea and an amateur fisherman. He "scans" around fishes while fishing along the coast of Marseille, as well as materials related to fishing (stoppers etc.). His desire to share this passion for aquatic fauna has made him develop his own concept of "Fishprint", inspired by the ancient Japanese tradition of Gyotaku (thirteenth century),which was to reproduce the image of a fish by printing it on paper, when the fisherman wanted to immortalize his best catch. Loic Bellier methodically defines his own style of graphics set around fishing lines, fish bones and ridges. They are like a tribute to fishes, which are placed vertically and make up a whirlwind on monochrome backgrounds. The sinkers and stoppers are considered as targets, which go under the water. The fish goes from water to being scanned, from the screen to paper, which is quite unusual for a fish.
