Elle:
Please, describe us a bit about your creative process while creating your artwork.

Nabil Nezzar:

I never decide to create a new artwork, that is something that comes naturally. It is actually a progressive feeling, that starts with need to create something new, then I picture something in my mind until I can’t wait to sketch something. I then explore my library (I have a huge amount of books, pictures, magazines, articles, etc.) and pick up the one that fit with what I want to create.
My drawing is 80% of the artwork. I start plenty of artwork at the same time and I need around 1 to 2 months to finish them all. I apply some thin layers of water colour, light blue-gray, although if it is a women portrait in colour, I apply a thin blue layer of watercolour. Finally, I use my colour pencils, gouache and/or water colour, but the process is very varying depending of the subject.

Elle:
You illustrate about fashion, design, art, music. What do you think about fashion?

Nabil Nezzar:

I really consider fashion as a big part of history. I am really focus on people and so is fashion. The evolution of fashion also show an evolution on culture and people’s mind. That what I love about fashion, when I see a new creation I am always trying to think what was the first thoughts of the designer.

Elle:
What do you think about fashion? Is fashion a part of your every day? How does fashion influence our live?

Nabil Nezzar:

If you see me in real you will never thought that I am doing fashion illustrations 😛 According to my friends and family I do look like and behave like an artist, but fashion is my main area from 6am to 11pm everyday. I think fashion doesn’t only influence our live, but it is also a reflecting our current culture.

Elle:
Do you have any heroes? What make them your heroes?

Nabil Nezzar:

I have a lot of heroes, from different topic, but to name a few I admire Coco Chanel for changing women’s lifestyle, Alexander McQueen for his creativity and the work of Tamara De Lempicka that are more like a ‚destination‘ to your dream rather than just a painting.
