For Le Voyage 2017, Docteur Paper has decided to invade the city’s downtown streets.
Aptly named illustrator and graphic designer, Docteur Paper, has been working in Nantes for years, developing his series, Travel With Me, in which he expresses his passions for travel, architecture, and typography. In a retro style all his own, he creates condensed drawings of cities with the utmost precision, inspired by his excursions to all four corners of the world: Amsterdam, Osaka, London, San Francisco, Barcelona, New York… and, of course, Nantes!
By using existing urban elements to mount his drawings (wiring cabinets for phones and electrical boxes), he creates a miniature Nantes all along the green line. And, to better reveal the atmosphere of our fair streets, he exposes the funny side of buildings, street names and businesses through images you might need a magnifying glass to truly appreciate.
