Izak Zenou – Bio
Izak, the exceptionally talented and stylishly quirky illustrator is a shining light in the world of fashion illustration. His unmistakably whimsical characters—inspired by Audrey Hepburn, Toulouse Lautrec, as well as his love for women and fashion—are immediately recognizable from the pages of leading international magazines.
Izak has created international advertising, promotional and editorial for a wide range of clients—delighting them with his unique sense of charm and wit, as well as his ability to express the essence of their brand through the stroke of his hand. For the past 2 years, Izak has worked closely with Celine to produce a series of 7 scarves. In 2005 he was commissioned by Guerlain to produce the packaging for a limited edition fragrance. He continues to be the face of Henri Bendel, New York’s source for original fashion and leading style.
Books include Billy Joel’s “A New York State of Mind” by Byron Preiss Publishing (a book for adults and children due out this fall featuring beautiful New York cityscapes); Bohemian Manifesto by Bullfinch Press; Cooking For Mr. Latte, a Crimson Books series by Amanda Hesser; a six book series by Carole Matthews, Harlequin; The Nanny Diary series, Parachute Publishing; 2 Lilly Pulitzer books and calendars on lifestyle and entertaining. We are excited about Izak’s forthcoming coffee table book, slated for Christmas 2006.
Izak has had five consecutive solo shows since 1999 at Printemps, Japan, where he has reached a near cult status, as well as numerous solo exhibitions in New York at A Taste of Art Gallery and at Henri Bendel.
