Born in Argentina, raised in Peru and Italy, French painter Marguerite Wibaux has spent a great deal of her life abroad meeting new people and exploring new environments. Now living in New York City, Wibaux often exists as a stranger, her approach to encountering and eventually capturing her subjects borders on social experimentation.
Marguerite Wibaux is self-taught. Her art career is quite paradoxical : immersed into fine art from the earliest age, surrounded by an art historian grandmother and an amateur artist mother, she first chose a conventional path : brilliant student, she graduated from HEC Paris, and then worked at Mazarine, the leading communication agency for luxury and fashion brands. After 10 years, she felt the urge to become an artist, and create representations that were compatible with her personal convictions.
Marguerite Wibaux had her first solo show at The French Cultural Center in Boston in 2019, and a two-people show in New York at QuietLunch in 2021. She did an Art residency at the French Embassy in Jamaica and had a solo show at SPRING/BREAK in New York in 2021.
