Amandine Urruty lives and works on her bed, with a suit case full of pens always nearby. After studying at University for long years and a brief career in underground music, now Amandine Urruty spreads her gallery of weird characters on all kind of mediums, on paper as on walls. As she masters techniques of traditional drawing, Amandine Urruty offers us a cheerful gallery of deviant portraits, associating grotesque outfits with baroque decorum. A way to miraculously reconcile lovers of alchemistic symbolism to young ladies with too much make up.
Indeed, Amandine Urruty builds her images like we would wander in the alleys of a Sunday fee market, borrowing to the mass of objects and to second hand toys their fundamental ambivalence, being wicked and peaceful, decorative and saturated at the same time.
Since the beginning of her career, more than ten years ago, she took part in more than seventy exhibitions around the world.
She also published four monographic books : « Robinet d’Amour » (Les Requins Marteaux) in 2011, « Dommage Fromage » (United Dead Artists, 2014), « Certains l’Aiment Chiot » (Critères, 2018) and « The Party » (United Dead Artists, 2018).
Her activity is now shared between exhibitions, illustration and a bit of wall painting.
