“Thibaut Désiront, aka MEKA, was born in a small town in the East of France in 1981. He currently resides in Montreal. Graduating in Visual Communication, he immersed himself in the skateboarding and punk-rock countercultures, the former inspiring his first logo designs while the latter set the bases of his thick black lines. His work revolves around the re-purposing of universally-known icons in order to inspire a reflexion that is understandable (even if open to multiple interpretations) by most.
In 2015, he unveiled « Push », his first solo show, a collection of 20+ paintings as well as a dozen other mixed-media pieces, all of them exploring the common themes of inspiration, positivity, and pushing one’s own limits – an organic follow-up to his famous “Keep Pushing“ series.”
– We needed a ‘Sigil’ around here, so for his work with Return to Fleet, the idea was to create an old school sci-fi logo, similar to the likes of the Tyrell Corporation, or the Galactic Empire, but with more of a fun cosmic feel; mixed with a comic style edge and a bit of 80s/90s cartoons thrown in for good measure. :3 Check out the badass results below or see it printed on a t-shirt over at the Trade Hub.
