CECILE CANTELE

BIOGRAPHIE

Cécile Cantele is a French artist born in Saône-et-Loire in 1966. At the age of 10 she was already attending the drawing school of Chalon sur Saône.  Despite a pronounced interest in art Cecile Cantele finally turned to the world of fashion.  From drawing school to the world of haute couture, the animal motif will never cease to influence her.

A member of the WWF since she was 12 years old, she became aware from a very young age of the importance of preserving wild animals.  As an activist, her art questions and problematizes the human impact on the environment.  Vacant and liberated from humans, Cécile Cantele’s world bears witness to the stigma of humanity.  Like parietal paintings, graffiti is used here as a remnant of a bygone civilization.  Ruined and deserted, these cities are now free from the predators that devastated them.  But make no mistake, the predator is not the one we think.  Far from being ferocious, the animals of Cantele personify, on the contrary, benevolent figures, guarantors of the infantile candor.   United, these children and totemic animals illustrate with great sensitivity a new world, divided between utopia and realism.

The mixed technique of the artist, who uses paint, marker or even a spray can, lures our eyes, who would not know if the graffiti is authentic or a clever trickery.

Poetic and colourful, Cantele’s universe captivates us and subjugates us with its softness and abrupt reality.
