5 Questions with Marylou Faure

February 21, 2018

CAUSEBOX: Tell us a little bit about your background. You’re based in London, but somehow designed our Spring Box while in Indonesia?

Marylou Faure: I studied at a school called L’Esag Penninghen, based in Paris, and got my Master’s degree in Digital Art and Art Direction. After that, I decided to move to London and worked in an agency for a couple of years before going freelance. Going freelance was the best decision I made as it enabled me to work on my personal style and has given me the freedom to work remotely from South East Asia for the last 5 months (hence working with you from Indonesia)!

What cause is most important
to you?

Equal rights, for sure. I also really try to fight against body shaming and like to represent characters that are curvy and confident.

You have an incredibly distinctive style! What are some of your biggest influences, both in art and in everyday life?

Thank you! There are a lot artists that have inspired me; painters like David Hockney and Henri Matisse and illustrators like Parra and Malika Favre. I also love to represent the female body and find it to be a great source of inspiration.

Tell us about the design for the Spring CAUSEBOX. Any unique stories or influences behind it? How was the process of designing a 3D box?

The process was pretty simple actually! I wanted to represent Spring with exotic plants, flowers and vegetation. The shapes are bubbly and playful, to give the box a ludic aspect.

Anything else you want to share with us about your artistic journey?

I think it’s important to always try to have as much fun as possible while you work. :)
