Murielle Vanhove, French artist began to show her gift for art and observation early where she observed the comings and goings of people in her parents Parisien Bar.

During the rush hours unknown people jostling and passing each other, a frenetic rhythm that fascinated this little girl hidden behind her sketch book.

During her further Education studies at ESAG Penninghen, she experienced a complete education in painting, drawing and photography which led her to working with publicity agencies. Ten years experience of creativity gave her the opportunity to fully realise projects for a wide audience. Later on Murielle became involved with teaching. Rapidly there followed the need to resume the motions, the gestes and the feelings of paint on canvas.

Her paintings reveal in bright colours, mixtures of people who appear and disappear under her light and vivid touch. Murielle catches a moment, a slight movement of time. Meetings, unknown people, people in a hurry and others who stroll about. People enter the frames as entering onto a stage but are completely anonymous. The lack of faces can either be a surprise or an attraction. The attitudes speak for themselves.
