Charles Kalpakian

Charles Kalpakian was born in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1982.

He lives and works in France.

After a ten year collaboration with prestigious design agencies including Ora Ito’s and Christophe Pillet’s, in 2011 he became a freelance designer, with clients such as Bespoke Edition, Habitat, Nemo, La Chance, Collection Particulière, Christophe Delcourt, Haymann Editions.

Charles Kalpakian’s design has three roots: France, Lebanon, and the Street Art culture.

These influences take shape through the reinterpretation of motifs from the decorative arts, filtered by a resolute urban and contemporary culture.

The stroke is always clean, even if the gesture resembles calligraphy in space.
