About the artist: Amandine Urruty was born in 1982, lives and works in Paris. After spending an uneventful childhood, cheating the boredom between the Wednesday afternoon pony club and studying Edika's comic book, Amandine Urruty leaves the family home in order to rise socially and study. the Plastic Arts in Toulouse, where she rubbed shoulders with various cursed local artists. A decade later, she interrupted, for obscure reasons, a promising career as a vocal singer, and decided to devote herself, not without a certain candor, to her first loves, namely animal painting and the representation of nude callipyge on different supports: flyers, monumental canvases, the body of a French popstar... Armed with a solid pencil technique, she draws her inspiration from the paintings of Jérôme Bosch and from reading the New Detective, stirring in her wake lovers of symbolism alchemy and buxom (slightly) vulgar teenagers. The result is a baroque work playing a balancing act on the boundary that separates the most noble elegance from the dirtiest vulgarity, like an improbable encounter between the Muppet Show and the fantastic Middle Ages.
