Christel Delrieu Pétraud (France, 1976)

Christel Delrieu Pétraud’s paintings have two characteristics: ‘Blur’ and ‘Shadow colors.’ She has developed a new approach to painting and is inspired by human beauty in general. According to Pétraud, art brings out feelings and emotions in us and allows all the senses to be stimulated. It is a universal language and gets us moving. Her mysterious painting works are covered by a veil, so to speak, which gives special effects. Different techniques and materials give her works an intriguing appearance.
