Whilst completing a residency at the printing workshop Nicole Crème, artist and illustration Aurélien Débat created the ‘Tamponville’ project. Although the project name could be misinterpreted in English, the word tampon in French actually translates to rubber stamps! And this is exactly what the project was literally built with. Using a range of 47 rubber stamps with architectural shape this gave the opportunity for new forms both reflecting the real and the imagined to be built again; creating endlessly beautiful and unique results.
The project was run in collaboration with other resident artists and architect Marc Kauffmann. By generating a range of versatile shape stamps they created tools that could make new images with inspiring results. The project concluded with a exhibition of the prints and 3D screen printed boxes that continued the building theme printed live at the event. This style has since been developed by Aurélien and could keep you inspired all day.
