Lefor-Openo

Lefor-Openo

Lefor-Openo were a French duo made up for Marie-Claire Lefort & Marie-Francine Oppeneau whom met whilst studying art in 1950. There doesn’t seem to be a terrible amount of information about them or their methods of working, though I love their use of colour and their lovely characters. Such sweet little illustrations, seemingly at the height of the popularity in the early 1960s.

I find myself drawn to so much work from this period and draw a lot of influence from it, style-wise and in my use of colour.
