[February 28 2017]
Integral to the success of the design duo M/M (Paris) are Mathias Augustyniak’s drawings, which he and Michael Amzalag sometimes incorporate into their striking advertising campaigns, commercial catalogues, posters, and design work for over 20 years.
Mathias’s position is to push the boundaries and to demarginalize the practice of drawing by integrating it into the context of contemporary art. He is discretely becoming an artist in his own right, following in the path of master artists like, let’s say, Francis Picabia or Matthew Barney.
For Purple Fashion magazine issue 25, Olivier Zahm interviewed Augustyniak for his first interview in which he speaks as an artist to explain his ideas about the medium of drawing. Learn more about the drawings of Mathias Augustyniak in our exclusive interview here
On view until March 25th, at Air de Paris, 32 Rue Louise Weiss, 75013 Paris.
