Ella & Pitr: Baiser d’Encre book

In December 2015, the French artist duo Ella & Pitr launched the book “Baiser d’Encre” (in translation, Ink Kisses), an exclusive and intimate collection of moments shared together, presented in the form of sketches highlighting some of the characters we have seen in their large-scale ground and rooftop murals, a reflection of people they’ve met, personal experiences, and memories of places they’ve visited.

In the book, as in many of their works, the artists manage to add a childlike innocence and positive, sometimes humorous, tone to the depicted situations and characters, while at the same time unveiling everyday struggles, absurd human actions and a series of emotions, states and connections that speak of the duo’s concerns with today’s challenges, joys and constraints.

The new book by Ella & Pitr is available on Superbalais, Sold Art and also in Le Feuvre Gallery in Paris, where the two will be part of a group show opening January 14th, 2016.
