If you were to make a Venn diagram out of art and illustration, you could safely pop Bénédicte Muller’s beautiful work right in the middle. Executed with a painterly finesse and an admirable attention to detail, her pieces naturally straddle the two disciplines, so even commissioned work for clients like The New York Times and Vanity Fair feels like a personal project. Geometric shapes and sharp lines recur throughout her portfolio, as do silhouettes which are carefully overlapped to create double meanings wherever possible. Bénédicte’s entire body of work has a considered air about it which makes it a pleasure to peruse.
