Once Chris Marmier could hold a pen, he started drawing and has never stopped. Born in a bi-cultural family that travels throughout the world, he's always observed, reproduced and reinterpreted the little details of a constantly changing environment.
He has studied visual communication in Paris and has worked in advertising agencies as art director. Currently based in Amsterdam, he is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. The sides of is notebooks have always been filled with little figures that will later expand in a first exhibition. That's when he felt like giving them more space. Armed with markers, he covers wooden boards with ink and his own vision of our world(s).
Chris works among others as an illustrator for one of the leadling Dutch Newspapers Trouw
