A UNIQUE TOUCH ON SIMPLE CLOTHES
We invite you to discover our new brand during a 4-days pop-up, where we’ll unveil 5 exclusive collaborations with international artists.
At bâtard, our goal is to provide high quality patches stitched on simple clothes, but we are more than that. Here is what the brand means to us:
Mathias Forbach, Switzerland Artist & illustrator
FICHTRE is a Swiss artist and illustrator. He lives and works in the charming city of Vevey, Switzerland. The artist feeds on his passion for books and music to create his pop universe. His graphic language is characterized by the techniques used: always starting from sketches on paper, his favorite medium, his explorations lead me to use different tools to achieve the final illustrations.
Anthropomorphic characters, vivid or pastel colors, graphic overlays, games of frames reminiscent of old printing techniques, geometric and symbolic shapes specific to the basics of illustration are used and form a personal graphic grammar in constant development and evolution.
Japan Artist & illustrator
Masanori Ushiki is an illustrator and visual artist, having studied at Masashino Art University drawing school, he is now based in Tokyo, Japan. Every day he spends 30 minutes to an hour introducing a new surrealist portrait, creating utopian superheros, sci-fi creatures and otherworldly characters. His unique style is inspired by the delicate linework of traditional wood block prints blended with modern manga, animation, video games, tokusatsu and pop culture.
France Artist & illustrator
David Vanadia is a French artist and illustrator born and based in Marseille. Through a minimalist way, he offers a singular work with a bold graphic identity and illustrations that like to make meaning. Graduated from a school of applied arts, his practice develops mainly around the themes of being and the mind.
The idea that the visual arts can play the role of a universal language fascinates and leads him to explore the primitive, if not almost mystical, facets of human expression. The link that unites man with nature also has a great influence on him.
With a more thoughtful than spontaneous approach, David likes to bring a poetic dimension to his work. Using graphic games and visual metaphors, David’s intentions invite reflection and appeal to our introspective feelings.
Born in Papua New Guinea, Tobias now lives in Switzerland. He creates abstract drawings reflecting what he experiences, thinks, and believes.
Introduce yourself in one sentence? Play, breathe, dream, zoom. Constantly aiming to enter into a flow state of creation, the act of drawing becomes a ritual in which Tobias manifests his encounters through his hands. The results are multiple variations of drawings that shift between abstract and figurative forms, between the known and the unknown. They always entail playfulness and curiosity, wilderness and tranquility. Each individual drawing exhibits a unique appearance.
Hong Kong, Jeweller
Belinda Chang is a contemporary jewellery designer-maker trained in Great Britain. Her career as jeweller began in 2014, marked by the creation of her signature Fruity Pearls Collection. She has had various roles within Hong Kong jewellery industry, preparing her for the launch Obellery – Contemporary Jewellery Studio.
