Artist Marc Lacaze unexpectedly died, Tuesday 9th August 2011.
Today, farewells are being said at a service in Paris, where he had a studio.
A mutual friend, Debbie, introduced me to Marc’s work.
His love of travel, and unique way of recording his adventures, struck an immediate chord.
He more recently created designs for American homewares company Williams-Sonoma, many emblazoning beautifully rendered cockeralls.
In the interview below, recorded about a year ago, he reveals the origin of some of his ideas and how he liked to work.
I love the way he makes reminiscing feel such an integral part of the travelling experience ~ Inspirational.
A tragedy to loose such a talented artist
