Faustine Badrichani is a French artist based in New-York. Her work focuses on the female body and is an exploration of femininity, showcasing colorful women silhouettes.
She explains: “For me, painting women is a play between what is universal and what is intimate, and this exploration is endless”
Mostly self-taught, she has been developing her artistic practice over the past 10 years, navigating between oil paintings and sculpture (direct plaster) at the beginning of her career, and focusing on works on paper and acrylic paintings in the past few years.
The female body has always been a central figure in her practice, and she has developed different series of works around this theme, creating her own graphic universe, and showcasing a unique use of the color blue throughout her work.
For this show, she is showing a series of cyanotypes (a photographic process that she has distorted and made her own, featuring women silhouettes in shades of indigo blues), and a series of “Multifacette” made by painting models from life in her New York studio.
Faustine Badrichani is represented in France by Esther et Paul gallery. In June 2021 she had her first solo show in Paris, named “D’abord la Mer”. In New York, her work can be seen in group shows with various galleries / curators ( Insight Art Space, Untitled Art Space, Brooklyn Collective) as well as in multiple exclusive and curated only platform (Artsy, Saatchi and ArtinRes).
