Origin: United Kingdom

Indian ink on silk paper mounted to wood.

In 2014, French artist YZ has moved her studio from Paris to Senegal. This relocation has been the opportunity for the artist to get into a very personal quest into her own heritage as she partly descends from slaves ancestors sent to the West Indies. From this search alongside an in-depth interest she has developed for West African history, YZ has been naturally drawn into the fascinating world of amazons - these 19th century female warriors originally coming from the West African Country of Dahomey – a former French colony.

In this new set of works, the artist is paying tribute to these extraordinary women who have shaped the face of Africa forever. Symbols of courage, these African amazons embed the values of modern femininity : strength, independence, and beauty.

Yseult Digan aka YZ (b. 1975) lives and works in Senegal. YZ (pronounced "eyes") is an established French street artist who gained international recognition since 2003 with her project "Open Your Eyes". Her art is centered on the question of humanity and authenticity in the context of modern metropolis. She goes even further with her series 'lost in the city' she offers here an in-depth questioning and understanding of each city (London, Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai...), and help us to realize what make them such unique and fascinating places.

YZ primarily works as a painter creating original artworks on kraft paper that she puts up on city walls like posters. These short-lived images become part of the city environment and question its fading memories.

Besides, the artist worked on the series 'women from another century';india ink and silk paper portraits of celebrities or unknown women from another time (inspired by photographs of the early 20's). She explores the role and image of the woman and offer us a feminine figure rich and complex but also very distant from contemporary stereotypes.

Works by YZ have been exhibited at the Grand Palais and at Fondation Cartier in Paris. In 2013 YZ has been invited for an artist residency at Centre Pompidou as part of project In-Situ.
