Painting with a view

“From my window” is a personal project by Antoine Ricardou, founder of the be-poles studio and artistic director of Le Pigalle. Antoine drew his creative inspiration from the capital’s northern neighbourhoods, which he describes as his “centre”. “I feel at home in the north, I bring my children here to buy their guitars, and I never get bored strolling around its streets.” This historical neighbourhood is perfect for Antoine, who loves nothing more than hunting down old books, documents and papers on which he has – quite literally – drawn the neighbourhood. To really understand Le Pigalle’s soul, he invested the premises during the works and copied details of its wallpaper, the façades of neighbouring buildings, glimpses of sky and flashes of neon onto fresh blank or printed sheets.
