Lustful surrealism in Mrzyk & Moriceau's dreamlike, risqué illustrations
// It's Nice That
Freud would love Petra Mrzyk & Jean-François Moriceau's illustrations. Better known as Mrzyk & Moriceau, the eccentric creative duo famed for their risqué, offbeat illustrations have built a portfolio heavy on pop erotica out of their French studio. Their surreal, sometimes kaleidoscopic images play with body parts, black humour and innuendo, toeing the line between the dreamlike and the lustful in a way only France seems to cultivate. Using the bare bones of illustration their almost exclusively black and white line drawings are no less stirring for their simplicity, and between them they've built something of a cult following for their music video animations for musicians like Air and the modern-day Serge Gainsbourg, Sébastien Tellier. In tribute to their favourite part of the female anatomy, the latter of these is a hypnotic rear-view animation of a girl walking. Here we've handpicked an evocative edit from the provocateurs' body of work.
