Amazon Zero is a indie-rock French band telling mystic stories and theories about the creation of the world, the birth (in an egg) of a woman as the first human, our actual society, ours behaviors, feelings, emotions and a primary society ruled by women.
My work as an art director, was to understand the client, immersed myself into every songs & histories. The main goal was to express (at best) the bands vision and make it visually understandable to the largest number possible.
The idea was, to express the epic birth of what they called « The First Amazon » as an historical painting, the more realistic as we could. Based on a lots of artistic references (Sculptures of Emilio Fiaschi, Edward Hoppers’ palette or details, severals 18th century paintings for the clothes, the skin color), I mocked up the image and began to looked for an artist up to the client’s expectation. Thanks to the great artist « Broken« , his patience and his talent, we manage together to depict as best the client’s visions.
