Yvon Taillandier

I can say this is going to be like a visual tour by the corners of Paris… living here is a good way to show you a little bit of some other places than the Sacre Coeur and the Eiffel Tower even if I love it as you do… but is like the “off the beaten path” I want to offer you the possibility of having some insights in a city full of art and crazy things…

As I’m not a full time blogger this can happen just today or very often, only the Universe knows… 😉

So yes, the other day walking around with me lovely husband we discover this wall in Rue de L’agent Bailly 9eme arrondissement…

(see the link to have a street view)

…full of great, crazy drawings all around the wall… and happily it was a little piece of wood with the name of the author in a tiny window… “Yvon Taillandier”.

Yvon Taillandier

Parisian, 82 years old and still working, he says he doesn’t like going around very often.

He was the inventor of these characters and use a particular language to call them: eg “capidipedes” are characters without trunk … or “altistes” that lovers have a trunk height to infinity.

Discover a little more from him and the magic of his drawings on his web site: http://www.yvon-taillandier.com/

  • Geometry
    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
