For the French graphic designer Marine Duroselle, a talent for the marriage of colour and form comes naturally. Divulging into the relationship between typography, shape and pattern, its clear this artist is a master in her element.
Duroselles’ refined and idiosyncratic style has been developed by an avid intellect, with an insatiable desire to learn and grow. Having studied at École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, in Paris and then going on to graduate the Royal College of Arts, in London, Duroselle clearly cherishes refining her practice.
The clean yet playful reoccurring objects in Duroselles art define her work, the most recent example of this is the stamp set created in collaboration with The Saturday Market Project. The unique set of stamps are based on an alphabet book created early in her work process, that is themed around her adoration of letters associated with shapes, and her early obsession with the alphabet.
Open to personal interpretation the shapes that compromise the stamp set can be sculptural objects on their own, or used for their intended purpose of marking paper with the vibrant colours Duroselle is primarily attracted to. Not to be treated preciously, the artist intends for the stamp set to become an interactive part of your life, to be loved and played with.
