Inspired by his passion for animals at an early age, French Canadian-American artist Marc Tetro began his career in Montreal by drawing images on T-shirts in 1985.
In 2022, a softer palette with new shapes and materials defines a new direction inspired by the You be You style of a new generation.
A pocket of silence during Covid-19 in NYC generates new graphics and a rethink on the direction of Marc's studio.
