Biography / Mademoiselle Maurice

The high mountains of Savoy are not only known for their beauty but also for the fact that this was the birthplace of the amazingly talented artist, Marie Saudin, better known as Mademoiselle Maurice. This French artist creates colourful artworks with mixed media materials and they look more than appealing for the eye. Mademoiselle Maurice has collaborated with URBAN NATION by contributing her works on a One Wall project in 2017.

Mademoiselle Maurice studied Architecture in Lyon, worked in Geneva and Marseille and went for a year in Japan. This is the starting point of her initial inspiration. Japan, the country of the rising sun gave her more than just its beauty. It taught her of the earthquakes, tsunami and nuclear power plant explosion of Fukushima. This was the point when she decided to create something out of that connection. In 2012 she created her first paper origami installation on the streets in Paris. The work was inspired from a legend in a shape of the word ‘NO’. This installation maybe got her on the spot and the Mathgoth Gallery represented her. Her online activism is also quite visible but people cannot but love her artwork. Mademoiselle Maurice uses five different models to create her works: the bird, the crane, the flower, the boat and the wind. Her message is undeniably strong as her presence and beauty.
