France based Marc Le Rest is known for his vibrant, grandiose portraits realistically rendered in oil, highlighting fashions through the ages as they adorn both human and animal subjects. Strongly inspired by historic portraiture, Marc’s sitters are poised and noble, regardless of species. With a clear interest in fashion, the traditional and historically accurate fashions are sometimes distorted and taken to surreal and avant garde proportions.
As well as his studio paintings, Marc Le Rest has collaborated as a textile designer with Hermès, Armani, J.P. Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel and Etro in Europe, as well as on collections for major home furnishing textile companies in the United States.
