The Delightful Sketches of Fabrice Moireau

There is regrettably little of Fabrice Moireau to see on the web, which I found out when wondering if I should buy his ‘Rooftops of Paris’. What I did find are true gems of city sketching, so I’d thought I’d share them with you.
One of my favourite images of them all:

  1. Good Morning,
    Do you have any idea as to how to contact the artist directly to buy individual sketches? If you find the book “Life is Meals” by James and Kay Salter you will find many of Fabrice’s sketches re: Food and Wine.
    Thank you,

  2. I think he has a LinkedIn profile but only barely. I love his work as well.

  3. I’ve been eyeing this book for a long time too. Then I realized he’s done more such books. His sketches are so inspirational. I was hoping to find out more about him but sadly google/wikipedia don’t profile him.
    The real winner in his sketching technique is his eye for detail- he represents architectural typologies so well. I’m hoping to find something similar for Amsterdam. And I would love for Moireau to sketch an Indian city, maybe New Delhi, this way.

  7. Fabrice Moireau lives in Olivet, a suberb of Orleans, in the Loire Valley. He’s must be well-known; it’s only a small town. Try writing a letter.

  8. Write to Fabrice Moireau care of his publishers in Paris. They will surely forward correspondence to him. His work really is fabulous.
