French illustrator Gilles Grimoin creates very touching and meaningful paintings. As the author says, he is trying to put into each painting not just a moment but a whole story.
And if you look closely at all the lines, shapes and colors, you will see the story. Everything else is drawn by viewer’s imagination. Gilles Grimoin says that he cannot find inspiration in the present world, so all of his sources of inspiration are in the past. For example, the main inspirational source for the Author has always been the classic literature of XIXth century. He is very inspired by the works of Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Allan Poe, and Oscar Wilde.
