Mind-blowing, psychedelic and cosmic are appropriate words to describe the Parisian band FarmWorker’s first album. Suave voices with a Slavonic accent surrounded by quality analogical synths. These were good enough arguments for me to accept the project. They consider themselves as farmers, cultivating notes and arpeggiator lines. The mystical songs inspired me to bring together a retro tractor and the cosmos in one image, leaving the end result open to interpretation

About Hadrien:

Hadrien is a graphic designer and artist born in 1992. He creates his drawings, using Rotring pens and more traditional techniques such as India ink, to depict the daily and sometimes the exceptional events going on around him.

For example, his first series Supermarket points out the emptiness and banality of supermarket products. Playing with their visual identities he wanted to contrast their mythical aura and their objective reality.

The series Hadrien is currently working on allowed him to participate in the fantastic Dali fait le Mur exposition in Paris (Montmartre). This new series is larger than the first regarding the number of drawings and possibilities of development. The main idea is: “every shape can keep its geometrical properties while changing in meaning”. He intend to explore varied emotions and subjects related to the symbiosis of Nature, the ephemeral aspect of animals, and forgotten beauty, by portraying numerous animals that are facing extinction. These portraits will be composed of natural motifs to remind the spectator of the importance and uniqueness of each animal in Nature.
