Damien Florebert Cuypers: Frieze Two Minute Portraits

It is often said that first impressions are all-important, but is it possible to capture someone’s essence in a mater of minutes? French illustrator Damien Florebert Cuypers certainly thinks so, and to mark Frieze Art Fair which kicks off today, he was commissioned by Nowness to turn his talents to some of the major artists, gallerists and collectors strutting their stuff in the capital this week. See Grayson Perry, Tracey Emin, Jay Joplin and others rendered in glorious high-speed doodles, and the rest of his portfolio’s pretty knock-out too.
