 The cover of Malika Favre's New Yorker

Malika collaborates with various magazines including The New Yorker for which he creates numerous covers. The female figure often recurs in them, one of the main focuses of the artist. It is a woman who is always different, of an eclectic collection - through time - of strong personalities, but each one unique. Sinuous lines, exotic touches and a pop language, at the same time very refined, are the common thread in all the compositions.

Language by Malika Favre equally often goes towards a synthesis and cleanliness of the lines . Patterns, geometric designs and repetition (which does not fail to reserve small surprises) are another of his focuses. Pop meets minimal in a game of solids and voids; the color palette dries up and leaves the task of generating contrast to a few selected colors.
