Emeric Tiercelin, a wacky and original mixologist

Emeric, who goes by Rico, is a self-taught mixologist of 24 years old who has been working in catering for 8 years. Since the beginning, people have transmitted to him the love and the richness of this job.

The moment he loves the most is drinks and appetizers with a background of great music (Funk, Disco, Jazz, Deep, House), great people, toasts and, last but not least : cocktails. He has always had a special interest for cocktails. Two years ago, he had the opportunity to create his own cocktail list for a new place. Since then, Emeric has found his real passion : mixology with all its complexity. This is actually a real art form. Emeric loves to create cocktails and is such a fun person.

A perfectionist, he pays a lot of attention to detail, especially for the flavor and the image. Organization and cleanliness are vey important to highlight the difference. He takes a lot of pleasure in creating a recipe that corresponds to a specific atmosphere. According to him, the loveliness of the job is in the creation, in the tasting and in the enjoyment of a client’s smile. He loves to work with house music to brighten his common sense. He gives love, fun, good mood and expertise in all his creations.

He told me that he is really inspired by Bob Peters, who is also a perfectionist and who puts together fabulous recipes. He uses very sophisticated techniques and creates exceptional mixtures of flavors which he perfectly presents.

Martin Kovar inspires Emerico as well. He is the co-founder of MixologyArt, a worldwide community of cocktails. His creations are fun, colorful and innovative with such a big number of flavors.

Emerico already transformed his hobby into a career, and this since the age of 16. He takes that like a hobby and particularly likes human contact, exchange and creation. He thinks that he is so lucky with his job and loves to transmit it.

This first cocktail is called ‘’Valentino’’, he created it for Valentine’s Day. He had a real crush for this cocktail. Made up of Lillet Blanc (for the sweetness), lime juice (taste enhancer), fresh ginger (for the aphrodisiac side), passion fruit (for the exotic side) with artisanal apple juice. The small “pluses” that make the difference are the lime zest on the rim of the glass.

The second cocktail is ‘’Red poison’’, you can consume it as much as you like. Emeric has an unconditional love for Gin whose aromas awaken his taste buds. The composition of Red poison is made with Gibson’s Exception, lime juice (taste enhancer with this lovely acidity ), fresh raspberry for its color and its bubbly taste, fresh rosemary for its smoothness, syrup of currant for the sweet side, with sparkling water. The bird’s eye to finish is chile on the rim of the glass.

Elisa Bihan, eccentric artist and emerging artistic director

Elisa is passionate about everything, it has always been her stronger personality trait:Not only for school but also in her personal life. She is very sociable and easy going, which enabled her to strike up interesting contacts for her professional life. She is lively and curious of everything and she loves to come straight to the point.

Her universe is constantly changing. Her world is intended to be fast and rhythmic. It is geometrical, vintage and very contrasted on colors level. She is constantly building her world among her encounters, her wishes, and her feelings. 

To work, she has two ways to proceed.
For the first one, she thinks about the message she wants to communicate, the feeling she wants to convey and the way to transcribe it in a visual way.
The second one is instantaneous, that means her ideas are coming without effort. When she has an idea in her mind, she tries it in several ways until she is happy with the result of her work.

Julie Lanoë, innovative dreamer and emerging creative director

Julie is an imaginative, intuitive, dreamy and innovative 21 year old woman.

She wants to use her creativity in her future jobs even if producing artworks is not a real purpose in her professional life. She needs to practice a creative trade to be happy.

She works in several manners : If she has a clear vision of her project and of her desired result, she can work without interruption and stay very concentrated. Sometimes she works in a more detached way and interrupts her work to change her mind and to find inspiration with the objective of creating a new vision for her work.

Julie is inspired by many different artists, but first by their style. She can feel affected by visuals which may naturally inspire her. She loves the bias of the color and unconventional artists who break the rules.

It represents a dancer with fresh and sweet colors with a non-realistic but graphic style. Except for curves of the body and hairs, lines are proactive. The number ‘‘20’’ is draw on the woman’s head and it represents her age. This work symbolize youth, colours, innocence, pleasure, life and naivety.

On this visual, we can see two women, one in front of another. Their attitude is wise. Their expressions don’t show any personality. In reality, they are fashion figures represented through colorful clothes. Personality is shown by clothes. This work is a denunciation of man-woman object due to modeling.

This visual is strong, on a red field which is a violent connotation. However, the face looks shy and hides itself below the person’s sweater. This representation evokes the paradox and the strength of emotions. One eyebrow is raised, to provoke us and lips are yellow as if this wise face was not really a wise face.
