Clarisse Hassan is a French-British illustrator and designer whose work often takes the form of publications. In her images she reckons with themes of identity, connection and compassion through storytelling-based drawing. Her illustrations seek to address complex ideas and emotions, such as sense of identity or heartbreak through simple illustrations, drawing on the power of the instinctual. Through her work at the RCA she has developed a writing practice that has a symbiotic relationship with her drawing process, as creative provocation for her imagery.
She graduated with BA (Hons) Illustration from London College of Communication in 2019 and has created commissioned work for Penguin Random House, Dorling Kindersley and Apple.
