Manon Blet lives and works in France, in Bordeaux. She has been drawing since her early age. Initially, she immersed herself in the boundless universe of manga and comics. Later on, it is the power of classical works by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Raphael, Vermeer, or Ingres that will obsess her. She is also seduced by the opulence of Rococo nature and the ornaments of Art Nouveau. In 2013, she dedicated herself to graphic arts studies, from which she graduated in 2016. The practice of painting, therapeutic for the young adult she was becoming, accompanies her daily, and it was in 2019 that she exhibited her first canvases for the "Elle, le temps, les choses" exhibition in Bordeaux. In 2022, she took part in a collective exhibition at the magnificent cultural venue of Les Halles des Chartrons (Bordeaux), and in 2023, she had the opportunity to exhibit a canvas in New York at the "Art on Loop" exhibition in a temporary gallery in Tribeca.
In her paintings, she explores themes such as happiness, memories, or personal wounds through expressive subjects like nature, portraits, or objects that resonate internally, inviting curiosity and silent contemplation. She uses oil painting, revealing compositions inspired by works that fascinated her. The events addressed (traumas, encounters, travels, fears, etc.) are evoked but rarely fully disclosed. Thus, her art becomes a playground, where she denies herself nothing to externalize her thoughts, in the manner of an emotional journal. An experience shared with those who engage in the contemplation of her creations.
