Biography
Translation in progress

Liliwenn originates from the fringes of the Atlantic Ocean, "lace that can often seem much like the edge of the world. Her work is defined by an exploration of paradoxes and contrasts which is at once torturous and utopian, wild and serene, definitely resilient. Concurrently with her personal work, as a free agent she punctually collaborates with painters, musiciansmd directors from various countries. In 2009, she was spotted by a brand of street wear clothing based in Bristol, and worked with them jn the launch of a limited edition clothing line that included the painting 'The Little Girl'. In 2010, her local council called upon her to design an entier apartment block. Then, several months later she set up the 'Crimes of Minds' project, aiming to inform, develop and push the boundaries of street art. In 2011 she played a part in videos: for instance, she painted a fresco in a promo for the ASM's hit 'Splice the Mainbrace' in Paris, and she organized the movie shooting of 'Crimes of the Mind' with the director Pierre Jampy and the musician Mattic (Wax Tailor crew & The Others) in Brest. Notwithstanding her track record as an art director and her interest in combining various forms of art, Liliwenn is first of all a painter. Working on canvas, wood or:gther materials, in urban environments and urbex (abandoned places), Liliwenn experiments various techniques, working with acrylic resin, ink, aerosol and recently oil paint This artist likes noble stuff, like wood which displays a form fflife and its history through nodes and veins. Her artistic work focuses on the wild nature of any being without any cultural, social or generational distinction, as we are all made of flesh and bones. her work combines metaphorical and symbolical aspects, always playing with the dissonances between fragiliiyj'blidity, life, death, resilience and hope, in particular through femininity and this connection to nature from which we cannot escape, even if we are living in a 2.0 world. This is a return to basics, to the very fuel of life, of its cycles and permanent renewal. These scenes, sometimes tormented, mixing delicacy and poetry intermingle with different times and fantasizing with a touch of realism, calling for everyone's imagination, trying to generate in the first place the emotion that lies in each of us. Eager for discovering and sharing, she took part in a number of underground and street art events in different countries and she was invited to paint andlo showcase her work in exhibitions in England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Tunisia and Argentina. She also took part in art auctions at the Palais d'léna, Hotel Drouot, Tajan, Artcurial in Paris and she let a mark in some cities like Los Angeles, London, Paris, Berlin or Buenos Aires to mention a few. One can find a part of her work in several books, magazines and websites all around the world. Her goal : breaking down borders and boundaries, emphasise freedom and express visceral emotion with a pinch of dreamlike poetry.
