Bruno Mallart is a graduate of the Penninghen School of Art Direction and Interior Architecture and has worked across several art mediums. He worked as an illustrator for renowned magazines such as Courrier International, Le Monde, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Today he lives and works in the countryside near Paris in the department of Yvelines. However, Bruno Mallart also lives in a world of his own, made up of situations and characters as eccentric as they are funny, depicted in original digital creations.
The mediums for his extravagant scenes are diverse and varied: boxes, boards, objects and furniture (consoles and coffee tables). In his creations, wheels, moving objects, mechanics and animals often reappear. Bruno Mallart likes them round and massive like turtles, rhinoceroses, elephants or pigs. He can’t help but add wheels and a head that is not the original head of the animal. Moreover, the artist admits that he is always on the lookout for new strange objects that could be used in his collages. His friends know this and are always on the look-out for inspiring objects when they go to flea markets.
Finally, Bruno Mallart, at the same time as being a draftsman, illustrator, painter, plastic artist, sculptor, he is also a digital artist! He deploys his imagination and fantasy on the computer. If he recognizes that the computer’s stroke is less rich than that of the brush or the pencil, he willingly uses this new means of artistic conception to go further in his creations. He starts from a traditional method of working with pencil, gouache, watercolor or photography. Then he uses a computer and its infinite possibilities to enlarge the initial work, to add a drawing, a picture or a collage, or to modify the image.
