About the Artist

Delphine Lebourgeois (born 1976) studied Fine Art in Lyon then went on to complete a Masters in Illustration at Central St Martins in 2005

She works in various medium including digital, collage, pencil, pen, ink, watercolour and screenprint but her working process always starts with an initial collage of found elements.

Her most recent work draws from various stylistic sources (ranging from Botticelli to comics) mixing symbols and cultural references in a playful and sometimes irreverent way

In 2014, Lebourgeois created a whole series of original drawings on the power of crowds “The Girl has a Gun” that was launched at the Other Art Fair in October 2014 : "My aim is to tell stories via precise scenarios that explore the realm of power relations whilst questioning Illustrative and Fine Art traditions"

Detailed and layered as if to underline the complexity somehow chaotic of groups' psychology, Lebourgeois' figures are replicated and organised in a geometrical way, but heads and expressions are unique, allowing ideas such as conformism and peer pressure, solidarity and belonging to be conveyed.

Her latest series “Smoke” moves away from the intricacy of crowds and armies, with images portraying a single individual smoking alone in calm surroundings.

“Smoking' is an interesting topic nowadays... in a society becoming more and more sanitised, we are not far from it turning into the next rebellious thing. For me, it belongs to youth and living the moment”

Delphine Lebourgeois was the winner of the Images 29 Critics Award.   She has worked for an extensive list of prestigious clients including The New Yorker, L'Obs, Le Monde, Harper Collins and her work is shown at international art fairs in London, New York, Singapore and Hong Kong.
