In 2008 Vincent, Pierre-Yves and Cyrielle opened Issue in the Rue Quincampoix, just one amongst many other art galleries in the area. The space concentrated on the work of young illustrators, graphic artists and comic book works at affordable prices – with such success that they re-launched in 2013 as a boutique, the sweetly-named Sergeant Paper.
With the work of more than 60 artists on sale, they offer an anthology of artistic discoveries, signed and in limited editions. The place’s managers, long stewed in the genre, track new talents in graphic arts, illustration, street art, typography and more on the white walls. Artworks are available in silkscreen or giclée (jet ink) prints:provocative surrealist works from Elzo, burlesque drawings from Amandine Urruty, symmetrical graphic monsters by Niark1 and many others make up an immense catalogue of works priced from €20 to €400.
In the midst of all this, you can also find crockery, tote bags, and their own-brand Sergent Cotton t-shirts. As one of them declares: ‘My mom is smart, she buys art!’
