 Biting the hand that feeds us since 2002.

NICK AND CHLOÉ JOIN BLINK ART.

Directors-stroke-photographers Nick West and Chloé Claverie have joined Blink Art for UK representation.

The two crossed paths after forging solid solo careers. Dubliner West taught himself photography, while Parisian Claverie began as an art director. A mutual love of images both still and moving helped to make this partnership greater than the sum of its parts.


Two heads are better than one, then? Joining forces has ensured Nick and Chloé can tackle more diverse projects. Claverie says: “We push each other all the time and do things together which we wouldn’t necessarily do on our own”.

They found their niche with children’s photography before snapping music’s own enfant terrible, Kanye West - a neat prelude to their promo work. This piece for Sam Tiba highlights their knack for sharp compositions and modish design.




Stylish beats. How about commercials? Nick and Chloé see Blink Art as the ideal place to develop their TVC reel. The pair recently worked with Martell and French music duo Cassius to launch a limited edition cognac. Both parties were impressed by the striking outcome.




Certainly caught Blink Art’s eye. What do they have to say? The studio have high hopes for the pair: “We are delighted to announce Nick and Chloé have joined the Blink Art family.

“Across all their work there remains a strong sense of the fantastical, with fairy tale-like worlds and intriguing characters. We can't wait to see what stories they'll tell next!”

For more on Nick and Chloé or any of Blink Art’s multi-talented creatives, contact Katy MacGregor on 020 3909 1761 or email her at katy@blinkart.co.uk.
