We spoke with Marine Tanguy,  French art entrepreneur, writer, speaker and media commentator and founder of MTArt Agency, the first agency for artists worldwide.

WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS?

Sat on the floor, wearing my beautiful silk PJs by Asceno, my 7 months old is next to me and he is dancing on his bottom to Ray Charles. My computer has seen better days. 

 

WHERE ARE YOU DREAMING OF GOING AS SOON AS THE QUARANTINE ENDS?

Back to our MTArt Agency artists studios, I miss our artists. 

 

WHAT QUOTE/ MANTRA / MINDFULNESS GO TO IS GETTING YOU THROUGH THIS?

Live the life of your imagination. I always had the same mantra and it enables me to escape while looking at art, reading a book or dancing. I re-imagined my surroundings and project what I want them to be. It also works when imagining new art projects with the art of my artists. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

My son, who is currently still dancing on his bottom to Ray Charles. I may laugh a little less when he will have destroyed my computer - Apple stores are currently closed. 

 

WHAT WON’T YOU EVER TAKE FOR GRANTED AGAIN POST QUARANTINE?

Hugs - I love them. 

 

WHAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE YOU LOVING AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT TO?

 So many of them! 

- The amazing ladies behind Beulah London - they are so amazing at supporting the women who make their dresses that I still want their dresses to be bought and loved so that more women are supported. 

- Rixo dresses - because the ladies behind the brand are so full of positivity 

- Flight Logistics for still sending our artworks to our amazing art collectors 

- Asceno London for the most elegant PJs in the world! I spend my life in them. 

- Mirabeau Wine for the most delicious wine, it always help in these times! 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE?

Petersham Nurseries!! I literally can’t wait, all the flowers must be so beautiful right now. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?

All our artists have started artistic responses and inspirations to help support people during this challenging time. Head to the accounts of Elisa Insua, Delphine Diallo and Andrea Tyramos. I also attempt (and sometimes fail) to follow the most delicious recipes by my friends Manon Lagreve, Nina Parker and Alexandra Dudley. I love the positivity podcast of my friend Caggie Dunlop and watching the dance of my friend Merritt Moore. 

 

WE ARE CALLED THE DECK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CARD GAME?

Bataille Corse - it’s a crazy game from Corsica, I used to play it daily on summer holidays. 

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE?

Red - that’s all I know : ). 

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX?

Nothing! I am sure that this is a pretty unique situation to be in. I am not someone who watches TV or series. I love to read. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

Rimbaud poetry - to realise that all little things are beautiful, the ray of sunshine on a laptop, an artwork or a cup of tea. 

 

 CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR SKINCARE REGIME? THE PRODUCTS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT.

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial by Space NK Apothecary and Charlotte’s Magic Cream (Charlotte Tilbury) I love my Immortelle mask by L’Occitane. 

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS?

Fruits : ) and lemon water! 

 

HOW ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR KIDS ENTERTAINED? 

Dancing, singing, bringing a new toy out every 5 min and lots of kisses. 

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE?  

I have sadly failed to do any… : (
