About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

For Cécile Desserle, the technique is essential and must be perfect. She likes to give free rein to her imagination, and to give features to sensual and lively women. Femininity is indeed at the heart of Cécile Desserle's work, femininity that she tries to sublimate in each of her paintings, through movement, expressions and gestures. The strength of her work has also seduced the filmmaker Abdellatif Kéchiche, who found in Cécile Desserle the artist he was looking for to create the works featured in his film "La vie d'Adèle", Palme d'or of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Cécile Desserle

France • Born in: 1971


Somber Portrait Painters

Dreamlike Characters


French artists

Born in 1971, the French artist, Cécile Desserle has been immersed in the artistic environment since her childhood and grew up in her father's ceramic studio. She studied Fine Arts in Avignon, her hometown and in 1996 she did a visual arts training at the Sorbonne. At the end of her training, she became a visual arts professor, and still teaches today.

In her work, she has several inspirations, like Ernest Pignon Ernest and Jacques Villeglé for street art. According to her, technique is the most important and it has to be perfect. In order to obtain this perfection, the artist uses a plurality of techniques: oil, acrylic, charcoal and collage. This demanding nature still leaves room for imagination and she highlights sensual and lively women. Indeed femininity is Desserle's obsession, she tries to sublimate this in each of her pieces, through movement, expressions, gestures. At times her femininity is light but at times committed.

She exhibited in a gallery in 2003, for the first time. Her recognition increased gradually, but the artist doesn't rest on her laurels and evolves her style regularly, by escaping the trap of expectations. The strength of her work also seduced the movie director, Abdellatif Kéchiche as he used Cecile Desserle's work in his movie « La vie d'Adèle », Palme d'or during the Cannes festival in 2013.
