Hello ! My name is Bertrand Fompeyrine, and I was born in Toulouse in 1987.
I studied architecture in France, Norway and Germany, before being graduated in Paris in 2010.
I worked as an architect before exploring other creative fields, I now live and work as a photographer and plastic artist in Paris, and sometimes in Mexico.
I like to explore the full realm of design creations at every scale, and to be close to the process of making objects.
Most of my design work is strongly related to Art & Craft.
When making pieces on my own, I prefer to use scrap and cheap materials that I find or rescue.
Ultimately, they are all influenced by the places i visit and where I live.
I find polystyrene on the street.
I love the poetry of this extremely light and fragile material.
I collect some sand from my travels.
Each sand is different, its color or texture reminds me of the places I visited.
I find and collect plastic, but I buy the glitter in Mexico.
I like these attractive colors, which catch the eye.

COP 22 exhibition,
LES DENEUVE festival,
WE LOVE GREEN festival, etc.
I have made set design for :
LE BON MARCHE,
STELLA MC CARTNEY,
THE GREATEST MAGAZINE,
