“Ronan Bouroullec's drawings follow the idea of so-called intuitive drawing. This technique allows him to develop new imagery and reach the subconscious layers of the mind.” — Vitra, on Ronan’s Drawings Posters
As one half of the renowned Bouroullec brothers, artist and designer Ronan Bouroullec is well-versed in the creative process and has honed a distinct approach to creativity: one based on balance and complementarity. The Bouroullecs’ repertoire is fuelled by their ongoing collaborative experimental activity, as well as their individual artistic pursuits. One informing, and balancing, the other.
Bouroullecs’ collaborative designs involve a rigorous and complex process of research and testing, Ronan Bouroullec’s personal work offers no interferences, no plans. Growing up in the countryside, Ronan Bouroullec started drawing as an escape, a source of pure pleasure, explaining: “...drawing for me became what in French we call ‘compagnon’, a sort of friend.” Today, his drawings are instinctive rather than intellectualised, retaining a sense of whimsical naïveté - and exuding freedom.
