ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WERE TWO GUYS IN PARIS. GROWING UP THEY DECIDED TO PURSUE A CAREER IN GRAPHIC DESIGN BUT SOON THEY CAME TO REALIZE THAT THEY WANTED SOMETHING MORE. AND SO THEY STARTED TO EXPERIMENT WITH PHOTOGRAPHY AND PHOTO RETOUCH AND COMBINED THIS WITH THEIR GRAPHIC SKILLS AND TALENT. IT WAS THROUGH THE COMBINATION OF THESE MEDIA THAT THEY FOUND AN OUTLET TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES BEST. TO REALIZE THEIR DREAMS AND VISIONS.
If you would have asked Julien and Stephane if they had any idea where Exterfce would bring them in the beginning of their exciting artistic adventure, they probably wouldn’t have been able to give you a conclusive answer. They pretty much went with the flow, and did what they liked doing. But when someone does something extraordinary, it can’t stay hidden. There will come a time that it all comes out and start living its own life. And that is exactly what happened with Exterface.
Julien and Stéphane created Exterface in 2005. In the past 8 years they worked on many personal projects, visualizing their visions of beauty and art with the help of some very sexy models. It all started with series of highly retouched and polished portraits. Each single one of them telling a story. What started for the two creative guys in Paris as a hobby has rapidly developed in an art style that can only be described as über beautiful and glamourous. And their unique approach brought not only unknown and known models to their door, it also landed them some commercial assignements and book publications.
One of the great things about Exterface is that they keep reinventing themselves without loosing their own character and the strength of their art. Their style developed and shows innovative approaches sometimes. And even the way they communicate their artistic view has undergone some changes. A few years back Exterface launched their own manifesto named Muto. Entirely designed, photographed and produced by Exterface, Muto Manifesto was a French artistic publication that first saw the light of day in 2011. With as sole purpose to glorify beauty and the vitality of the masculine figure. But recently Exterface put their Muto Manifesto to rest in order to explore a new exciting platform to express their creativity: The Excapist.
With The Excapist, Exterface returns to their roots. Spantaneous, free-minded and generous. All on the Internet. Through the Excapist Exterface tends to share their inspiration, interviews they do, collaborations and everything else that they believe is of interest for their fans. In other words, with The Excapist, Exterface allows us a sneak peek in their creative kitchen. Already they plan to publish books every other year or so, that will summarize the best from the Excapist. One of the very first exciting projects Exterface announced through The Excapist is their new collaboration with famous French adult actor and model Francois Sagat, with the KICK SAGAT calendar. And more to come, on regular base, about Exterface and their new adventures. All on The Excapist, an Exterface experience. –BM-
