Size Guide

8 1/4" x 6"

letter press print, limited to 150 prints

Ciou, was born in Toulouse in 1981, she actually works and lives near the forest and the ocean in south of France.
She succeeded to gain a relevant place in the world of contemporary pop art and lowbrow, at a very young age. 

Suspended between dream and nightmare, her paintings consist of a base made of a collage of old papers, taken from old medical books, dictionaries, and nature manuals, where she uses acrylic and ink; creating her own personal mixed media. Her Influences are diverse: the American vintage culture from the 30′ to the 70′, the Victorian style and the European barocco too, however she is focused on the Japanese culture and Japanese traditional and contemporary art. Her style is characterized by a line of great expressive force and a language where the power of color and deformation of shapes combine to make her stroke unmistakable. Ciou creates her own «necro-kawai» cosmology of characters mainly centered around witch-y nature burlesque girls and their strange animal companions.  Her new works feature florescent psychedelic colors as a foil for her obsessive black line work.
