Artists Interview With Benoit Maindreault

September 26, 2013

When did you started to make art?
As soon as I had a pencil in my hand.

What project are you working on right now?
I just finished the visual identity of Colin Stanton, American filmmaker. And I start a new lettering project that I could talk to you soon, top secret project for the moment.

Tell us a bit about your childhood?

Initially fascinated by the comics, I tried to copy. Then I discovered hip hop culture and graffiti during my teenage years, alongside my Visual arts studies. I grew up in a small town where there were a lot of abandoned factories and some good graffiti artists, I was really fascinated by this underground world.

What kind of art inspires you?

Everything around me, especially lettering & street art, but also fashion, industrial design, music.

What would be 3 movies that you would recommend us?
Difficult to choose only three... Moonrise Kingdom, White men can't jump (sorry), La Haine.

What dream did you have recently?

I never remember my dreams, but one day I dreamed that I was riding the pen in the Adobe Illustrator interface.

Who would be your favorite artist?

Shepard Fairey.
