SMILE WITH ELYX BY YAK AT COLETTE

10.05.15

Sometimes the simplest idea is the one which brings you happiness in your life or at least makes you smile… Elyx, the little character created by Yacine Aït Kaci, better known as Yak, has become a real social phenomenon with more than a million likes on Instagram.

First, Elyx is drawn on a white paper or in a small sketchbook and then he is shot “on location”, creating a fun and comic situation, picture. Walking through New-York’s streets or picking a flower, I am a fan of this graphic work.

The 1st of October was the launch of Elyx’s first book with 240 pages of creativity and poetry. A limited edition is also available since the 24th of September at Colette.

I already see myself enjoying this book during my lunch breaks… Such a pleasure!
