We were excited to open our mail the other day to find a submission by French artist Léonard Combier. His paintings and illustrations are mazes of color and line. Their compositions are salient when viewed from afar, but the details of his work require intense and careful examination, revealing whole worlds in the folds of their squiggles.

Combier says, "My goal here is to amuse the spectator and to take him into my world. I want to make out of each artwork a maze, in which ones like to wander and discover all the nooks and crannies." He is currently based in Paris.
