French artist and designer Gilbert Legrand uses familiar to all of us objects to create—mostly by painting them—some really interesting characters.
It is a usual thing for artists to see in common objects something else. The feature of Gilbert Legrand is the fact that he offers everything he sees to his viewer. Scissors, brushes, zippers, cutlery; everything has a life of its own. Gilbert was born and raised in Paris, but moved into the provincial town of Toulouse. Here he works as a freelance illustrator, and at the same time exhibits his works in various galleries around the country.
