Lives and works in Paris, France
Born and raised in Annecy, Frédéric Forest discovered his first love before he could even write: drawing. This passion led him to Paris to study design and took him around Europe, working for a host of luxury brands, before settling back into Parisian life where he started his own design studio, Forest & Giaconia, with interior and product designer Clémentine Giaconia. However, it is for his drawings that he is best known, with a cult-like following that stretches across the globe (219k followers and counting) as @fredericforest on Instagram and over 3 000 people tattooing his designs on their bodies. Frédéric dedicates his time to his passion in his Parisian studio in Montparnasse, in the 15th arrondissement.
