Born in Paris in the 80's, he grew up with the cartoons and video games from 80-90s and spent his teenage years surrounded by hip-hop culture, practicing graffiti and listening rap music. Later he discovered japanese animes, and became a big fan of Studio Ghibli especially Miyasaki, and some specific mangas like Amer Beton, Akira, Afro Samurai, Samurai Champloo, which have developed his artistic style into what it is today.
Fakir founded his freelance studio, FAKIR DESIGN, in Paris, France in 2008 and has built a reputation as a toy designer but also works as a painter, illustrator and character designer. He juggles between traditional and digital techniques, adapting his technique with the project and medium, with a great obsession for finishes!
