Biography / Ciou

Born in 1981, French Ciou made a name for herself in the world of Pop Art at a young age. Her multi-layered and opulent universe is a visual oeuvre filled with fantastic themes. After studying fine arts, she soon had her first solo and group exhibitions in France and subsequently in international galleries. Her work can be found on her collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

In her paintings Ciou approaches themes such as nature, death, metamorphosis, paganism and beauty. She herself characterizes her art as Necro Kawaï, where Necro stands for the dark side and Kawaï for the sweet side. Her style is the hybrid of European, American, Mexican and Japanese influences. The artist composes dances between attractive nymphs, phantasmagorical animals and anthropomorphic plants, which grow together in a wild hustle and bustle and form a new unity.
