About the Artist:
Adrien Havet and Jesse Daubertes both started their career as graphic designers before to dedicate themselves to their love for illustration under the name Førtifem.
Keen on Metal music, they’ve been working with this industry since their first projects in 2012, collaborating with bands such as Rammstein, Queens of the Stone Age, Slipknot or Gojira, but also venturing in other universes, such as publishing, advertising or fashion.
Drawing with four hands, from their union emerged a style between ancient engravings and modern tattoo culture. Gig posters lovers, they’ve exhibited in many music festivals as well as in exhibition spaces around France, Europe and Asia.
