Born in 1970, Marc Le Rest is a French born artist who turned his back to a promising career within the Holy Church to dedicate himself to the Arts and the Kingdom of lingerie in Paris. Soon he swapped Paris for New York, where he became an acclaimed garden gnomes designer. Afterwards, he spent some time in Mexico and India. Le Rest also contributed as a textile designer to the collections of Hermès, Armani, J.P. Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel and Etro in Europe as well as some collections of the major home furnishing textile companies in the United States.Description:Tomoé is a superb painting from the Samurai series, produced by Marc Le Rest. Tomoe refers to heraldic badge. It appears in many designs, and with the rise of the popularity of the samurai in Japan, it comes to no surprise the symbol can be found here as well. The man-like monkey wears a typical samurai costume and is looking confident. The painting translates the meaning behind its title very well. The painting is signed with the artist his initials M.L at the bottom right corner.
