Our collaborating artists

At Meraki, we’re continually impressed and inspired by local talent, whether illustrators, photographers or artists. We’re always looking for the best—our favourites—to collaborate with them on a project (or two, or three…)

For limitless inspiration, we present some unique looks.

To discover. To embrace. And to apply to your wall.

 

Marie-France Auger

 


A lover of patterns with a child’s heart (even after turning 40!) Marie-France’s imagination is quite simply overflowing! Her favourite playground? Designing textile patterns for interior decoration and children’s clothing, two areas of which she is particularly fond and that have enabled her to express herself for over 14 years.

She enjoys creating playful and colourful graphic universes, but she admits that she has a weakness for the black and white. She is curious and enthusiastic, and feels most in her element when she works collaboratively, where her creativity can nourish different visions and approaches.

Marish Papaya

 

Marish loves life and loves people, and knows how to reveal true beauty! She’s a human artist with a big heart, and her unique sensibility enables her to capture the extraordinary from the ordinary, perfection from imperfection, and the amusing from the mundane.
 
 
She’s a portrait specialist, and we feel special through her eyes! Her art celebrates uniqueness and diversity, she knows how to channel a face, a cat, a bike, or a pair of underwear! We love the second degree of her creations, when she’s added her touch of humour and a bit of thought. In short, we’re pleased and proud to collaborate with this favourite artist!

 

MATEL

MATEL
 

 

Matel gets his inspiration from the banality of the everyday life, people, nature, etc…

The result always flirts with caricature.

Evolving in a goofy universe, his characters take all kind of shapes and expressions while having their own specific meaning.

Snowboarding and skateboarding have had a major influence on his awakening to the world of art and design. Most of his time is spent painting, doing murals, drawing and working on illustrations for clients of different environments .

In the past years he has done illustrations for; Yes snowboards (Switzerland), Rome snowboards (USA), DevGru snowboards (Japan), Fairmont Château Frontenac (Canada), Spy Optics (USA), Vans (USA), De Stefani Winery (CAN) and more.

Her heart swings between children’s illustration and botanical illustration, but she often manages to marry the two to create soft and enchanting universes.
