About this work
Heterogenous, abundant and firmly alternative, Ciou’s world is a visual compendium of fantastic themes and styles, cultivating a taste for the odd and folkloric. Ciou approaches in her work subjects including nature, death, metamorphosis, paganism and beauty.
Self-characterized as a Necro Kawaï art (Necro for the dark side, Kawaï for the cute side), her style is the result of a massive hybridation of European, American, Mexican and Japanese graphic fields. A large part of Ciou’s world can besides being described as a strange carnival parade where tattooed ladies, charming freaks and outsiders are the norm. She composed acid coloured farandoles with attractive nymphs, phantasmagorical animals and anthropomorphic plants grow and intermingle.
Ciou, born in Toulouse in 1981, actually works and lives near the forest and the Atlantic ocean in France, after living in Bruxelles and Paris.
