Katia Krief

Né en 1964 - France

BIOGRAPHIE

Born in 1964 in Grenoble, Katia Krief is a french artist living and working in the Paris area. Following her daughter's birth in 1999, she graduated from a distance Arts Bachelor at the French Sorbonne University in Paris.

The discovery of the South African artist Marlène Dumas and her ink paintings as well as Yan Pein Ming's monochrome portraits, combined with this major event in her life, triggered a profound artistic journey. She started by drawing children and babies but quickly switched to painting. Nowadays, she continues to work on canvases with a wide range of formats and techniques, mostly using ink, walnut stain and acrylic. In the beginning, Katia essentially used black, white and grey. Since then, she has incorporated lively colors to her art while maintaining the enigmatic core of her work.
From girl to woman, Katia Krief depicts the female figure as it evolves, creating a world in which her characters are not constrained by a title. Adorned with vibrant colored dresses, Asian kimonos, wedding dresses or neutral colors, these adorable dolls are neither entirely the same nor entirely different. Despite their distant unattainable appearance, these female portraits have the power to lure the spectator into their nostalgic and captivating world through their still, evanescent gaze.
In 2015, the artist's second exhibition titled "Reines d'un jour" (Queens for a day), took place at the Guignon Gallery in Paris.
