Tuesday, April 30, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: A Visit To M/MANIFESTATION
When we heard that M/M Paris’ first West Coast exhibition was happening just over the hill from us at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, we were pumped! The hyper-creative and majorly lauded Parisian design duo, Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag, are most well known for their unique integration of hand-drawn illustrations with rich photographs, but they’ve also made serious waves in the fashion and music world as well, with their trippy and emotional video for “Hidden Place” by Bjork and as creative consultant and art director for Vogue Paris (we’re impressed, which is hard to do). The exhibition, M/MANIFESTATION, just wrapped up on April 28th (sorry L.A. locals!), but lucky for you all, we managed to get there in time to check it out and grab a few snaps! Click through to see what we saw—namely, another collection of visual images making a turn towards The New Aesthetic, while still integrating their more iconic use of hand drawn and printed techniques.
