We would like to welcome Gabriel Launer!
Gabriel is a free-lance illustrator and concept artist that arrived at Stone Soup last October. He has worked on video game designs and artistic branding. His art can be described as visual storytelling – creating worlds, characters, and stories to artistically immerse the viewer.
Gabriel was born and raised in France, where he received an Engineering degree from Lycee Jean Perrin, St-Ouen L’Aumone. However, after graduating he decided to pursue his initial passion, art, and went on to study at Villa Arson, the Fine Art school of Nice.
As an artist focusing on his personal practice, Gabriel makes an effort to collaborate with companies that he feels truly passionate about. This allows him to explore his creativity through a variety of different outlets, which can be seen in his collaboration with ‘Up-Κυτταρική θρέψη’, a vegan restaurant that promotes health and nutrition. Gabriel has used his artistic aptitude to create a brand for the restaurant, by designing visuals and illustrations for them.
Gabriel’s general ambition and true enthusiasm, however, comes from his individual projects. Through his art, his purpose is to effectively demonstrate and communicate ‘pure’ art, to convey authentic emotion that can easily be understood by the audience. By establishing is own artistic identity, Gabriel hopes to collaborate with other artists on bigger projects, and potentially participate in exhibitions to showcase some of his work.
