Benjamin Flouw is an artist based in Marseille.Because of all the wildlife documentary he watched as a kid and the botany books he now reads as an adult, he is very concerned by all the environmental issues we are facing. He therefore assumes it might be nice to fill the world with pictures of animals, plants and landscapes, just in case those things won’t exist anymore in the future.His style is a clever mix of flat colorful geometric shapes, textures, patterns and dramatic lighting.He loves working on commercial and editorial illustrations, books and poster projects.
