Beautiful Silkscreens Merge Design, Ability, and Love
We recently discovered artist, designer, and vintage auto enthusiast Mr. Antoine Gaslais and his handcrafted silkscreens. Born in France in 1975, he moved to Paris to study art in Penninghen School, then Maryse Eloy School where he graduated with honors. Following his graduation, Antoine immediately joined a production company as an art director, working primarily in the medium of music publishing. In 2001, he joined and edited the designers collective 21X29,7 and developed it over seven years. In 2008, he left the group and began handcrafting silkscreens while remaining a freelance art director. Always fascinated by cars, but also aircraft and motorcycles, he works for the promotion and preservation of historic vehicles through his association with the 912Club.
Antoine held the first 912Club meeting in June 2013, at which time La Yellow wasn’t running because of financial duress. A friend, Julien had a 912 spare part: the engine. so they decided to put his original engine in Antoine’s 912. As Antoine was silk printing, he decided to make a poster to capture the first meeting. Everyone loved the poster and he received a lot of positive feedback, so he made a second poster for the second meeting. After that he was asked to make posters for clubs, rallies, and shops trying to merge his passions. So he makes posters, but really it’s a transition as he slides inexorably towards contemporary art, always with his expertise as a designer and passion for cars. It’s not the end of the game, it’s just the beginning!
