His designs seem a mix between Hantaï and Matisse. French artist, Quentin Monge, brings us a dose of color that comes back in the saddle when morale is low!
It’s through his minimalist characters and beautifully composed patterns that Quentin captures a fascinating world of sea life for the pleasure of our eyes.
His childhood in the south of France, near Saint-Tropez, gave him this pronounced taste for light and soothing hues. Quentin is much sought after by major sponsors such as cosmetics Kiehl’s or Airbnb and a warm wind blows on its creations lined with a pleasant summer smell.
“The Blue and Fuchsia Nereids design features a repeating pattern of algae and nereids: friendly female spirits that symbolise everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. They are the perfect representation of the joy and optimism that Arrels Barcelona is known for.”
