THE MINIMALIST MAN
The stylist, who also counts herself as a photographer, designer and film producer, was responsible for creating Madonna’s look during her bangle-tastic bridesmaid Like a Virgin era.
She also influenced the style of Grace Jones, Debbie Harry and Cher, as well as being art director for the Italian fashion brand Fiorucci in the early 1980s.
She moved from her native France in the 1970s to NYC. After moving downtown with her boyfriend, the photographer Edo Bertoglio (whom she had moved from Paris to be with), the pair found a run-down loft space and started to throw parties and photograph friends there.
Maripol practically invented the selfie, using her Polaroid camera. “I would take Polaroid selfies to express myself: my sorrows, my joys, my sexiness, my love. I didn’t scan them for 30 years.
No one ever saw them for that long.” Most recently, her Polaroids have been referenced on the cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album, released last year – although Swift used a modern photograph edited to look like a Polaroid.
She is probably best known for working with Madonna, and some say she discovered her. “She wouldn’t like that! Let’s put it like this: she discovered me,” she laughs.
Hervé Le Sourd is from the Parisian suburbs. An injury forced him to give up on a football career.
He then intended for music. In 2015, Hervé began his professional career, creating the musical duo Postaal. At the same time, he wrote and composed many pieces, some of which were selected by Johnny Hallyday and published on his posthumous album.
Hervé writes, composes, sings and produces at his home. We could say that he's multi-talented.
As a curious guy, he "learned everything with his computer, watching videos on YouTube & searching information on the Internet.
Even he's not a professional player, he still practices football.
When he was a teenager he had multiple jobs: catering, he worked for an ice cream shop and he also worked on a theater.
Olafur Eliasson is a Conceptual Danish-Icelandic artist concerned with sensorial experience and perception. Through installations, public projects, films, photography, and paintings, Eliasson activates the senses of his viewers in immersive artworks, as seen in his The Weather Project (2003) installation at the Turbine Hall of the Tate London.
Born on February 5, 1967 in Copenhagen, Denmark to Icelandic parents, Eliasson grew up in the city and went on to study at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1989–1995. After graduating, he established his multi-disciplinary studio and laboratory in Berlin.
In 1995, he moved to Berlin and founded Studio Olafur Eliasson, which today comprises a large team of craftsmen, architects, archivists, researchers, administrators, cooks, programmers, art historians, and specialized technicians.
