Murielle Belin

Born in 1976 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1976, Murielle Belin lives and works near Nancy, in the North East of France.

As a child she was already familiar with all sorts of artwork, as she was often going to artists' studios when she was not yet in her teens (various artists such as painters, puppeteers, conjurors, sculptors or even poets). Murielle Belin used to restore paintings now and again, before deciding to devote herself full time to her own creation.

Her dark and highly sensitive universe is mainly inspired by ancient iconographies (anatomy paintings, ancient and modern bestiaries, religious or scientific prints). She is particularly fond of classic art techniques such as oil painting on wood, clay or engraving, and fringe techniques such as taxidermy and quilling.

Somewhere between singular, visionary or surrealistic art, the artefacts originating from Murielle Belin's workshop are patiently and meticulously designed. They are the product of a spontaneous and instinctive blend of skilful art and popular imagery, revealing a tinge of cynicism and humour behind the gloomy landscapes and tormented characters.
