7TH PLACE WINNER – HIGH ART 2020 – MARINE BOROCCO
“Achane, The Lace Maker”
Marine Borocco is a French artist with a special love for beautiful, dreamlike imagery. He could spend hours looking at the organic shapes of smoke or clouds, of foliage or hair‚ there’s so much beauty in our world, so many sources of inspiration! Whenever he creates an artwork, be it a personal painting or a commercial illustration, he always tries to put some of that beauty in it‚ because it’s what makes him happy to be an artist, and because he hopes his work will make other people a little bit happier, too.
In this image, thanks to his magical abilities, Achane weaves pictures of light, making his audience dream of other worlds and distant times, of stories that echo in their hearts. Since Achane is from the fantasy equivalent of the Moroccan Riff, Marine figured he would fit perfectly with the contest theme!
