ABOUT THE PROJECT
The "Daily Monster" project (also known as "One Day /// One Monster") consisted of publishing on Tumblr between 1 March 2013 and 28 February 2014, a monster per day. Either finally 365 Monsters (and some extra characters). Here is a selection of the best and suitable ones principally for kids.

Lives and works in Paris & Lyon, France.
Coming from a family of artists, he began very early to paint and draw (a first exhibition at 16 years). After studying History of Art (Ecole du Louvre), he returned "professionally" in the creation with Design (furniture, lighting, tableware) and a first collection launched in 2003.
It was in 2008 that the "project" "Hooly" was born, marking a return to hand drawing, then to painting.
Since then he has worked as a painter and illustrator for various sectors (Fashion, publishing, objects, decoration, etc.) throughout the world.
"SUB-POP" ART & "SUBVERTAINMENT".
If he claims to be a "sub-pop" artist (a non-existent and thus unclassifiable artistic category), it is at the same time a desire to remain within the framework of a modest popular art (Low Art) accessible to as many people as possible (Almost an urban "art brut") but also by reference to what formally nourishes his art: "subculture", Underground, the "Bad Painting" and the "Figuration Libre" of the 80's (Basquiat, Haring, Combas, Di Rosa), music or comics (the "Klare lijn" as much as the style "Kawai"). Even if behind this displayed bias are other influences (Dada and Marcel Duchamp for example).
This is how the "Hooly" universe was born, and soon enough the challenge of developing this universe of "infantisation" as an "ideogrammatic" language with its syntax and vocabulary; The entertainment would be subversive!
This "subvertainment" has since evolved but continues to question with humor and irony the ambiguous and sometimes incestuous relations between art and consumer society, the place of the unproductive artist in the contemporary world ... And others Subjects.
Always with this desire to finally leave to the "viewer" the last word: the freedom to interpret what he sees ... or does not see.
