Chateau-vacant is composed of three French artists; Yannick Calvez, Lemuel Malicoutis, and Baptiste Alchourroun. Although they have differing stylistic techniques they share one thing in common; and that is their desire to create computer-free art. With Chateau-vacant they have come together to celebrate their alternative approach to illustrative design.
Really great work by French animator and illustrator Baptiste Alchourroun. The video uses choppy motion and what seems like a loooot of neon/brightly colored paper to create a really cool effect. The music is pretty catchy too and the character in it reminds me of the dude from MSTRKRFT because of his ‘stache (insert ‘stache n shades competition plug). Check out more of Baptiste’s illustration work after the jump & definitely check out his website because it’s all bitmap-y and cute.
