This May, the Louis Vuitton Travel Books collection welcomes two new titles: the Paris and Southern Africa travel books. After a number of promising talents has been featured in-between the pages of the most artistic of travel books, it’s time for two more to shine: Brecht Evens and Liu Xiaodong.
Young, Belgian and a cartoonist, Brecht Evens is a story teller through images. His work shows what words couldn’t tell, like landmarks, crowded Parisian streets full of life and simple views of French starry nights.
Liu Xiaodong produces paintings that look like reinvented photographs of daily life. His undulating portraits of animals and people show a world of resonating with heat and warm colors.
