At Méduse, we strive to seek out the underground talents who share our values. Every week, a new star…
Since we spotted her artwork, we were dreaming about getting in touch with her… If you’re used to hanging out on our blog, you can’t have missed it – Virginie, is an exceptional artist, and she expresses her Méduse like a true artist, who is in her zone with a crayon or paint brush in hand.
A fan of our NIKITA, she told us a story about Méduse and she took us by the hand, through her playground. As she voices her words – everything comes to standstill.
Where does your inspiration come from?
I try to grab inspiration from a lot of things. It could be an object, an image, an exhibition or a film! Childhood is an endless source of inspiration. Indeed, my favourite artists have a very childish style to them. It’s impossible to mention them all, but among them you can find Steinberg, Picasso, Twombly, Basquiat, Sottsass, Cocteau… I like art to be spontaneous, refined, clumsy, funny and not pretentious. And generally, I like fantasy, humour, romanticism and poetry!
Your work is defined through particular use of colours. How do you decide on the use of certain colours? Is it impulsive or do you think about it beforehand?
Adding colour within art is not an easy step. From time to time you can have unexpected outcomes, but I like to try a lot of different techniques: acrylic, watercolours, felt-tip pens, colouring pencils and pastels – which I like the most!
We love your work on Méduse – of course 😉 ! How does the Méduse world inspire you?
I am a total fan of Méduse! I like the quirky side and the playfulness. Of course it reminds me of my childhood. They are really comfortable and you can have all the colours! I almost only wear them in the summer! I can’t live without them!
If you had play-doh in your hands right now, what would you do with it?
I would try to create a Méduse collection!
What is your favourite Instagram filter for posting your picture?
All these filters are really cool, but I barely use them! I prefer to use no filter.
We have a challenge for you ! You drew Nikita and Sun Meduse. Could you make a drawing of Jumpy boots ?
And there you have it! Virginie is on Instagram
, she’s a total inspiration for anyone who wants to get stuck in and get creative! Our Méduse inspire her – and surprise surprise – we are in love with her work.
Thanks Virginie! X
