The Lion of Lyon (for Lyon Expo 2015)

Illustration for the advertising campaign promoting the "Foire De Lyon 2014" (LYON EXPO 2015). Illustration by Charis Tsevis for Publicis Activ Lyon.

The "Foire de Lyon" (Lyon International Fair) is an international business expo event held every year in March in the city of Lyon in France. The expo is born in 1420 when Charles VII grant the privilege to the city to host two free fairs per year while Lyon has joined the crown of France in 1312 while the Champagne fairs are animated since the twelfth century. Today, Lyon International Fair is a trade show on the furniture, decoration, etc.
For the advertising campaign of the "Foire de Lyon 2015" I have been commissioned by Publicis Activ Lyon to create a series of illustrations with wires. The dominant one would be a lion representing the city of Lyon. A house has been also created for the deco section of the fair. I have also created a combined version of the house and the lion and some wire compositions to be used as dividers and as decorative elements in the various layouts.
