Linlin and Pierre-Yves are experts artists in the fields of Digital Creation and Visual 3D Production. Their beautiful organic sculptures are realised through a joint creative process which is core to the couple. Each piece resonates with meaning: one can see both Chinese and French cultural references in their intriguing artworks. The artists’ interests and inspirations intertwine in works of art that pay homage to wisdom, the natural world and human emotions.
