Rive Gauche ist das Synonym für ein Team von zwei Illustratoren. Der eine mit Schwerpunkt 3D Rendering und Figurentwicklung., der andere ist klassischer Fotorealist, der hauptsächlich mit Photoshop arbeitet. Beide begannen als junge Illustratoren mit der Spritzpistole und Acrylfarben in Mischtechnik fotorealistische Motive zu Papier zu bringen. Heute entstehen die meist aufwändigen Szenerien zwischen Fotoshooting, 3D Design und Malerei mit Photoshop. Heraus kommen Bildwelten, die komplett der Phantasie entspringen. Hier ist alles möglich. Heißluftballons, die in der Tiefsee schweben und Fische die durch den Himmel schwimmen? Kein Problem für Rive Gauche.
