Simon Delart: from L-A* to L.A.
Simon Delart defines himself as an illustrator and graphic designer, inspired by pop culture, who pays homage to this world by designing using only triangles. Having studied graphic design at LISAA Nantes, he then spearheaded the French "low poly" movement almost four years ago, following in the footsteps of international artists such as Liam Brazier.
His work, particularly that produced as part of the Poster Posse collective, rapidly reached an international level. The reach of his work commissioned by Marvel, DC Comics, 20th Century Fox, Disney and LucasFilms also played a significant role in his route to success.
His work in the field of pixel art was exhibited in the US and in Japan prior to gaining traction in France. Furthermore, his work is regularly shared and retweeted by the directors and actors from the films on which he works. Most recently, this has included Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool and Peyton Reed for Ant-Man.
