FL@33 vs antoine+manuel July 2006
FL@33 portrait of antoine+manuel for the wearitwithpride [wiwp] project 'two faced' - in conjunction with idN world. "Portaits of some of the most talented and influential creatives of the last decade."
Two book spreads and a few details of the artworks themselves:  The FL@33-designed portrait of antoine + manuel was created in a way that a new hybrid face emerges.  Also shown here: the FL@33 portrait created by antoine+manuel – a funny hand-drawn illustration.
Selected artists and designers were paired off and given the task of creating a portrait of the person/collective they had been teamed up with. They could be abstract or photo realistic, hand drawn or digitally composed, they could even have something manufactured, like a toy or sculpture. Everyones final pieces were then compiled into a book (published in April 2007 by idN) and book launch exhibitions were held in Hong Kong and London, showcasing selected work. The final book – entitled Two Faced: The Changing Face of Portraiture has an introduction by Adrian Shaughnessy.
