is a fashion illustrator and artist based in Paris.
Spending most of his youth at a boarding school in the center of France near the convent where Coco Chanel grew up, Rivrain’s first drawing was of his mother, a particularly stylish woman who introduced him to fashion. “She’d always bring my brother and I to Paris to go to Chanel or [Yves] Saint Laurent and she would ask for our advice. Fashion was always all around us.” His mother can also be credited for his artistic use of makeup: he would “borrow” her shadows and powders to supplement his palette and still uses blush and nail polish to bring another dimension to his often uncanny drawings.
