Design & Designer 039 – KRSN, official blurb: An art director and illustrator, KRSN cut his teeth on the graffiti scene in the early 1990s. Without ever forgoing his aerosol sprays and Posca paint pens, he has developed a personal style shot through with dark irony.
Taking a novelistic approach, he combines illustration, graffiti and painting, drawing inspiration from everyday life to create characters made of fine, pared-down lines. KRSN operates at the intersection of graffiti, graphic art and illustration. Using a variety of supports – stickers, paper, walls, card, fabric – he compels attention with a personal style that is both disturbing and mysterious. Mutilated and disjointed characters begin their life at the ephemeral tip of his ballpoint, a favourite tool. Besides his artistic and other self-initiated projects, which take up most of his time, he collaborates with WAD and Clark magazines, and does illustrations for covers of discs released by the Institubes label.
Paris-based Pyramyd Editions has regularly been publishing monographs since 2002 featuring work by selected artists, graphic and product designers. These bilingual monographs form part of a series called Design & Designer. The books contain introductions and descriptions in French and English for the many featured project visuals. Each publication title has a serial number (such as Designer & Designer 033 – FL@33).
In some cases – especially within the first 25 of the series – a second and even third edition was published with fresh new content and a 'v.2' or 'v.3' added to the book title. Other titles go out of print and do not seem to be reprinted in the foreseeable future (such as Antoine+Manuel's book for example). At time of writing this text the Designer & Designer series already reached serial number 086.
A few selected titles are available here especially by some of our own contributors who already created button badges and more for Stereohype. Fill any gaps you may have in your collection or start yours today.
