Fred le Chevalier, le Marais in Paris
Fred le Chevalier was at the top of my list of artists I wanted to see in Paris, and I knew his work was in Le Marais, where I was staying. What surprised me the most was the size of the pieces. They were much larger than they appear in all of the pictures on Instagram and Twitter since it can be difficult to capture and convey scale.
The detail is amazing and the style is sweet, yet haunting, like a Gothic Victorian doll. The characters are mostly black and white with a little red and sometimes yellow. Some of the work has poetry accompanying it; the one I saw with poetry (middle) was damaged and unfortunately unable to read it.
There is a book of Fred le Chevalier’s work available on Amazon. I would love to add a print to my collection so Fred can adorn my walls.
