Monday morning again

about François Beaurain

There is a beautiful expression in French for the daily work routine, it is “métro, boulot, dodo” which means “subway, work, sleep”

Although I am no longer an office employee and I can lay in my bed as long as I want — and not only on monday mornings — I have feelings for those who have to fight 9 to 5 spleen on a daily basis.

This project is specially dedicated to commuters, stressed-out executives, people in the middle of their life crisis or who will hit it soon.

I hope you will have the chance to discover it on your way to work — preferably on a rainy day — and that they’ll make you smile.


François Beaurain was born in Bordeaux, France in 1976. He’s a self-taught and multifaceted artist working predominantly as a photographer, but he sometimes extends to drawing, collages and sculptures. Francois is mostly known for his animated gifs project “Monrovia animated” which is part of the “Making Africa” exhibition by Vitra and Guggenheim Bilbao.

He studied physics and holds a PhD in Biology. He’s currently working as a climate change specialist in parallel to his artistic activities. He lives and works in Paris and Rabat, Morocco.
