Cécile Desserle is first and foremost a pop rock artist: faithful and rebel. Faithful to an ethic based on solid, proven technical roots. Strong foundations which enable this passionate woman to set free a vital drive of colours and sensuality and improvise with rare dexterity and talent. Cécile, born in 1971, produced her first work when just ten years old. In her father’s ceramic workshop she discovered a world revolving around art.
After studying at the Fine Arts school in her home town of Avignon, Cécile trained as a visual artist at the Sorbonne and was subsequently taken on there as teacher of visual arts. She continues to teach Visual Arts and History of Art today. Her inspirations then become a driving force and her permanent signature: the movements and involvement of the artist’s body in Action Painting, omnipresent line drawing strongly influenced by Ernest Pignon Ernest and what she calls the «contemporary palimpsests» of Jacques Villeglé. Her interest in Street art will become a clear anchor for her.
