Nautilus Art Print returns to their Jacques Tati series with Playtime by Vincent Mahé!

CINEMA IS LIKE A PEN, PAPER AND HOURS SPENT OBSERVING THE WORLD AND PEOPLE. – Jacques Tati

Following Mon Oncle and Mr. Hulot’s Holidays, Nautilus Art Prints is embarking upon yet another one of Jacques Tati’s cinema milestones: Playtime. The movie failed to be a success when it was originally released, Playtime is an exorbitant and insane piece of work which is now hailed as a classic as important as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.

The shooting went on for three years, an entire city made of skyscrapers was built from scratch which ultimately led to Tati being totally bankrupted.
In collaboration with Les Films de mon Oncle, Nautilus is very proud to present a new screen print signed by French artist Vincent Mahé, whose style perfectly fits the style and universe of Jacques Tati. Don’t miss it!

About Vincent Mahé
Born in 1984 with colour pencils in his hands, Vincent grew up in Brittany, France. In 2003, he attended the Atelier de Sèvres in Paris where he studied Drawing and Painting and graduated in 2008 at the famous Gobelins School.
In January 2013, he co-founded along with six fellow artists, the «Messieurs Dame» collective that is based just a stones throw away from the Seine river in Paris.
Since then, Vincent has been working for the French press, magazine XXI being one of them for which he designed a cover in 2013. In 2015, he designed another cover for Télérama for which he illustrated the biography of Le Corbusier to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his passing. Vincent’s illustrations can also be found in various international publications such as The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Monocle.
In 2015, the auditorium of Lyon commissioned him to design their visual identity and since then He designs 3 posters per year for them. In the same year, he published his first book: the acclaimed «750 Years in Paris» (Nobrow ed.). A graphic novel without any text, narrating the story and evolution of a single Parisian building from the Middle Age up until today.
His joyful and colourful characters evolve in a disproportionate yet tendre and acidulated urban universe.

About Jacques Tati
Jacques Tati (born Jacques Tatischeff) was a French filmmaker. Throughout his long career, he worked as a comic actor, writer, and director. In a poll conducted by Entertainment Weekly of the Greatest Movie Directors, Tati was voted the 46th greatest of all time. With only six feature-length films to his credit as director, he directed fewer films than any other director on this list of 50.
In early 1946 Jacques Tati and Fred Orain founded the production company Cady-Films, which would produce Tati’s first three films. «Jour de fête» (The Big Day) «Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot» (Mr. Hulot’s Holiday) and «Mon Oncle» (My Uncle).
Tati played the gauche and socially inept lead character, Monsieur Hulot. With his
trademark raincoat, umbrella and pipe, Hulot is among the most memorable comic characters in cinema.

I'm a true child of the 80s from a small town near Cleveland, Ohio. My all time favorite topics are Star Wars, slasher films and Cleveland sports (despite the misery it causes). I narrowly avoided law school, instead choosing film school. I have been accused of being a walking IMDB, but I take it as a compliment!
