Marc TARASKOFF
  • biography
Marc Taraskoff (1955-2015) studied literature and philosophy at the Sorbonne. Meanwhile, he worked as a librarian and became an illustrator in 1978, essentially for book covers. His first work was the cover for the novel "Hitler et Staline montent en ballon" written by Gérard Guicheteau.

His work for the publishers includes different techniques: pencil, ink, watercolours, acrylic, oil, with no preferences. He loves to change techniques as often as he can to avoid boredom!

Between 1996 and 2004, he worked for Le Monde newspaper, where he drew daily portraits of personalities and illustrated the culture pages.
He designed several posters for festivals, notably for jazz festivals, which he has a passion for (Calvi Jazz Festival), for the Journées Georges Brassens in Paris, and thousands of book covers for the following publishers: Balland, Grasset, Omnibus, 10/18, Pocket, Gallimard, Plon, Robert Laffont, Albin Michel, Le livre de poche, Denoël, etc.

In 1996, the philatelic department of the French postal services, Philpost brought him in to create stamps - more than 50 until today. He has been the artistic advisor for the philatelic commission of Saint Pierre and Miquelon’s postal services ever since 2005.

For ten years now, he has been dividing his time between working for publishers, designing stamps and realistic paintings.
