Our favourite cookie monster and seriously talented artist Jakob Hinrichs is exhibiting his work in France...
"The Jakob Hinrichs exhibition, in partnership with the Franco-German Center for Provence, offers for the first time in France a broad overview of the artist's talent through the numerous preparatory drawings, sketches and original plates of his adaptations, but also Personal works and projects that remained unpublished in the hexagon, as his very nice contribution to the collective work A Graphic Cosmogony . The idea of Jakob: revisit - nothing less - the myth of the creation of the world ... in 7 pages of course."
