This Frenchman’s arty eye joins the sett.
Guillaume Cagniard is a man of many skills. London production company 15 Badgers recently signed him for representation as a director and artistic director, but he’s worked in all sorts of artistic fields before, including designing acoustic furniture with his brother Timothée.
Having originally started his career as a creative at TBWA in Paris, he built up a strong understanding of advertising. He later moved on to become creative director for French street artist JR, with whom he worked on projects like the controversial Women are Heroes, plastering huge images of women on the walls of the Seine.
More recently he has moved into the realms of music videos and he’s got off to a pretty good start as a director, creating a striking art video for Mercury Prize winners Alt-J.
