Planetary, aware, cosmic. This is how Florian Tripoteau, French artist and designer defines his work. Despite being young, Tripoteau stepped into the fashion world in 2018 with the launch of his first t-shirt design on Everpress, the rising platform for creating, selling and buying unique garments. Since then, he has conceived over fifteen t-shirt designs which customers can pre-order through Everpress.
With a background in graphic design, Tripoteau went on to develop a taste for printed media, incorporating his visual acuity into his t-shirt designs. The resulting abstract graphics on his prints are now what he calls his “wardrobe essentials”.
To state that fashion is an art form is evident, but the link between graphics and fashion is not so conspicuous. For Tripoteau, the main thread tying these two worlds together is his fascination with images and the emotional connection people develop with them. Elaborating, he says, “I used to exhibit a few pieces, mainly posters, alongside my graphic design studies, but it’s not until I joined the National School of Photography in Arles [in France] that I really started to offer my work to the ‘white cube’ and the art world.”
