Fruits & Flowers “Fruits and flowers are truly a source of inspiration for me. These ones are a detail of a set of 4 risoprint, very bright and colorful.”

Should I see the same colours as you?

Summer is coming (Part.2)

I love these simple and fun designs. I adore the bright and bold colours Maupetit uses, particularly the pieces with a smaller range of colours, such as the watermelon piece above, compared to the more multicoloured pieces like Fruits and Flowers. The patterns are sweet and summery, so you can imagine them on bags, scarfs and dresses. I like the quick sketch style of her work, like doodles you would do on a napkin at a restaurant, or on a pad of paper while talking to someone on the phone. They are informal but smart and controlled.
