Meet the correspondents: PARIS > Joseph Lapostolle


"To draw in a sketchbook became very rapidly an obsession, a need. I draw in bars, cafés, as I take public transportation, at night, during parties, when I travel, under the sun.

Ten years have passed since I arrived in Paris and this obsession hasn’t disappeared. It is true that drawing people interests me more than drawing architecture. My sketchbooks are based on the people I meet, in current day life, as if it were a diary. Initially, it was a means to reinforce my drawing skills. However, it has gradually become a truthful way of existing. My relation to the world becomes easier with a sketchbook in my hands.

My sketchbook has become today the most durable and coherent example of my work… and in my vision, the most precious one."
