Graphically bold, simply rendered and heavily silhouetted, the work of Jules Julien satisfies that part of us that longs for the deep intricacies of illustration but appreciates the minimal and easy to digest. As an illustrator out in Amsterdam, I have confidence that Jules knows exactly what she is doing, and she's doing it right.

We have shown you the works of Marion Fayolle before on the site, but more of the sneaky perverse works that are slightly pornographic, but in a more tame sort of perverse porno way. Now we have a look at Fayolle's full illustrative repertoire, which has a little Marcel Dzama quality to it. We like it.

We have shown you Clement Briend's gargoyle projections on the site before, but we came across a bit more public projection series by the French photographer. Whether projecting on a tree, building, or bedroom, Briend is able to have the surface's detail accentuate the depth of the images he projects. That makes this no ordinary public projection intervention.

One of our favorite artists of the moment, Jules de Balincourt, has had a busy few months, with works at Victoria Miro in London, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and now a full museum show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rochechouart, France. The exhibition will present a dozen of paintings from 2003 to now, and will also focus on the artist’s studio, the Starr Studio in Brooklyn, which has served for a few years a serves as a space for performances and concerts, as a gallery for local artist and as a community center.

Bruno Catalano is a French artist whose sculptures are often missing pieces. The human figures are travelers heading towards unknown destination, lacking important pieces but still standing. It's as if someone took the Photoshop "eraser" tool to them! Mr. Catalano was born in Morocco and a lifetime as a sailor inspired him to make these intriguing sculptural works.

Using everyday objects in materials such as lighters, paper, book spines, and fabrics, French photographer Eddy de Azevedo has created a series of photographic images that are inspired by Rothko and 1950s Color Field paintings. Eddy has categorized the works by the materials he used: "Office" for stacked paper, "Dressings" for fabrics, "Library" for books, and "Walking my Dog" for the objects he finds on the street.

We thought we'd take a look through the work of one of our favorite photographers this morning, Robert Doisneau. Together with Henri Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau was a pioneer of photojournalism and one of France's best known photographers. Known for his modest, playful, ironic images, and juxtapositions (ha!), he has left behind an almost overwhelmingly extensive and broad legacy of images that continue to inspire us every time we revisit them.
