The Wildlife Analysis is an psychedelic-ethnographic journey to an indefinite country. Usings ballpoint pen mixed with fluorescent and coloured pencil, Dimitri Broquard creates drawings that translate as a lost world, a place between the romantic and the baroque. Broquard seeks inspiration from the Age of Enlightenment, the time of discovering and explaining the world, the myth of "The Savage", the confrontation of rationality and mysticism.
Dimitri Broquard is part, with Bastien Aubry, of the two-man design studio FLAG. Since 2002 FLAG has worked for art and cultural institutions, producing catalogues, artists books, magazines and posters. FLAG also creates drawings, illustrations for editorials and private projects. Both Broquard and Aubry respectively teach at art schools in Switzerland.
I bought this beautiful little zine from Analogue Books in Edinburgh's Grassmarket. Published last year by Nieves.
