The Name Behind the Art: Malika Favre
The Artist Behind Domain WeHo’s Iconic Look
Domain West Hollywood is wrapped up in a simplistic and sophisticated style that leaves everything to be desired. We’re redefining the expectations of apartments in West Hollywood by showing what it looks like to live life to the nines. When people walk through Domain West Hollywood, it’s not uncommon to hear the question “Who’s the artist?”
So, who is the mastermind behind the bold look?
It’s Malika Favre is a French artist currently living in London. Her bold, minimal style, often described as Pop-Art meets Op-Art, is a striking lesson in the use of space and color. Her unmistakable style has established her as one of the UK’s most sought-after graphic artists. Malika’s clients include The New Yorker, Vogue, BAFTA, Sephora and Penguin. Books, among many others.
Here at Domain WeHo, we love strong female perspectives, and in an exclusive interview with DesignBloom, Favre shares her background and inspiration behind these powerful illustrative designs. Malika worked as a designer for six years before setting up as an illustrator. She even dabbled in web design after graduating with a design degree. Always having favored drawing to typography, she began infusing the two in her approach to illustration. Her love of drawing stems from childhood, where she gravitated towards capturing the curves and organic shapes of the female body in her work. Throughout her career, she was taught to find beauty in the simplicity of her illustrations. That approach, married with her love of drawing and strong design background, eventually evolved into a manifesto of sorts that defines her iconic style.
