Like looking into a Wes Anderson fantasy world the french duo Zim & Zou will give your eyes a colorful ride. Using handcrafted design from tangible materials such as wood, thread and paper they create handmade art installments. Paper is by far their favorite to work with, the ability to manipulate the paper to come to life with volume and layering is a passion for the designers.
With a background in graphic design, publishing and advertising these two are paving the way in creativity and expression. Zim & Zou's work has evolved over time with their installations venturing into using humor and irony to spread awareness on world issues such as the dark side of the food industry and healthcare for children in need.
Taking a look up close at these installments forces you to appreciate the hours and hours of detail and personal touches put into each piece that make them unforgettable. Their use of pastels and pops of color appear as candy at times fooling you to think paper might just taste as good as it looks. The future appears to be infinite for Zim & Zou, and we can't wait to see what they create next.
