Igor Elie-Pierre

Igor’s studies in design pushed him to think about his audience rather than just creating for his own satisfaction. ‘‘I want to create pieces that last, that are appealing to the eye and that people will enjoy wearing without missing the artist’s narrative or visual intention.”
‘‘My goal is to combine both imagination and aesthetics to touch the viewer and the user’s feelings by using the appropriate elements. My designs are mostly influenced by photography; there are a lot of faces, emotion, and expressions. My most explored themes are self-reflection, iconic people, personality, and human responses. My passion for performance art, fashion and cinematography are also perceived through the movement, the dynamism, the textures and contrast in my work. Being Haitian allows me not to be afraid to incorporate eccentric colors in my art.
It is hard for someone to categorize my style, however, I would say that it is expressionism and pop art combined.’’
