Walk at home - Maxence

17 mai 2023

We've been hanging out with Maxence for several years now. I remember in 2017 seeing his name come up in our E-shop orders. I already knew him as a youtuber and I was flattered to see him buying Walk. After that, we became buddies.

We arrive at his home, a studio in the center of Paris. His walls are filled with framed Canevas, I think he has a hundred of them. He has his favorites, those on which he has an anecdote and those which are under the bed for lack of place.

  • This canvas entitled "By the fire" is the first of my collection. It has a sentimental value, particular. For the little anecdote, I had found it on the flea market which is regularly held on the avenue Voltaire in Paris, a few meters away from the very first Walk In Paris location. So what! (end of the anecdote, I couldn't find a better conclusion). Recently, a very talented friend (Lucas Pastor) painted me a picture that idealizes my absolute dream. He represented me in front of a beautiful cottage in the forest, playing ball with a giant labrador. Something to feed my inspiration even more. Enough to throw me into my wildest dreams to one day make this one come true! When I saw it on display, I was blown away, I see a lot of myself in the animal that is the labrador. And to see them there, both, serene, by the fire. It evoked comfort and calmness in me. I took out my best 10€ bill (something like that) and bought it, telling myself that it would be my little totem that would accompany me in my creative periods, hanging in front of me in all my music studios. I remember staring at it for many minutes when inspiration didn't come at all. Then one day I moved to a larger apartment and upon stumbling upon a few other beautiful embroidered finds, I began to expand the family of these old canvases that now adorn my walls (I'd have to expand the walls now.). The appeased labradors were joined by the puny cat, Johnny Hallyday, a failed sketch of Michel Platini, many old peasants, glittery horses, Jesus Christ, and other wonders from another time. By the way, embroidery canvas was just another activity in the days before League Of Legends. It's not uncommon to come across the same designs several times that I already own at flea markets or on second hand sites. But these two Labradors, I have never seen them again. I like to think that they are unique and only at my side.
