Léa Maupetit is a French illustrator, living and working in Paris.
After graduating from ECV Paris in type design in 2015, Léa developed her own style of illustration, based on the work on bright and vivid colors, with compositions full of life and humor.
Her clients come from various backgrounds such as textile & pattern (Arket, Des Petits Hauts, Smallable, Athé Vanessa Bruno, Make My Lemonade), visual identity (La Tour d’Argent, Alain Ducasse, Moët Hennessy, Jimmy Fairly, East Village Market, Secours Populaire), the press (The New York Times, Milk Magazine, Scoop Magazine, Doolittle), book publishers (L’École des Loisirs, Gallimard Jeunesse, Laurence King Publishing, Macmillan, Milan), etc…
Léa also distributes her prints all over the world via her own e-shop and in retail shops in Europe, Northern America and Asia. In 2016, Léa published her first illustrated book, Les Piscines de Léa Maupetit (Clémentine de la Ferronnière eds.). On this occasion, her original gouaches have been exhibited at the Galerie Clémentine de la Ferronnière in Paris. Léa’s original paintings have also been exhibited at the Galerie Klin d’Oeil (Paris) and at the 1905 Re-creative Space in Shenyang (China).
