was born in 1982, she lives and works in Toulouse – France – on her bed, with a suit case full of pens always nearby. After studying at University for a few years and a brief career in underground music, Amandine Urruty spreads her repertoire of beasts and her gallery of weird characters on all kind of mediums. As she masterizes techinques of traditional drawing, close to engraving, Amandine Urruty offers us a cheerful gallery of deviant portraits, associating grotesque outfits with baroque decorum which miraculously reconcile lovers of alchemistic symbolism to young ladies with too much make up. Indeed, Amandine Urruty builds her images like we would wander in the alleys of a Sunday fee market, borrowing to the mass of objects and to secondhand toys their fundamental ambivalence, being wicked and peaceful, decorative and saturated at the same time.
