When there is only an independent Journalist, Art Critic who has a single role, it is easy. One could even stop there.

 

When that very person runs a design company for over 15+ years in Paris, London, Tokyo, San Francisco and since 2016 London again, actively working as a creative and highly innovative person, who started working as an illustrator at British Vogue, consequently moved to Paris to collaborate with Vogue France, Libération and dozens of other international magazines, fashion and luxury houses such as Dior, Chanel, Saint Laurent, Cartier and LVMH, eventually becoming a Fashion Photographer in New York at Harper’s Bazaar USA, a New Media Designer in San Francisco, an Art Director in Japan at Issey Miyake, and years later in NewYork at Ubikwist magazine, a Creative Director and Brand Creator in 2016, in London, at London Advertising for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, producing online videos with Isabelle Huppert, Morgan Freeman and Lucie Liu, a Contributing Artist and Photographer at Assouline Publishing USA, a Contributing Artist and Curator at Cartier for the "Panthère" travelling exhibition, a Filmmaker in the movie business, and an Art Critic in contemporary art between London and Marrakesh....... well, the story gets slightly more complex.

 

Roles are juxtaposed but isn’t that the point when you work in visual art?
