About the Artist

The Art of Valerie Honnart can only be understood from the perspective of cross cultural influences combining her home country with China and Italy where she lived. From China she remains fascinated by landscapes, martial arts, life energy control through breathing. She combines the use of inks and pigments in a sophisticated process similar to the creation of an opera.
Italian influences is revealed by Valerie through the sensuality of bodies in motion illuminated and irradiated by light. As a consequence she paints bodies as she would create a landscape. Her inspiration is the result of those cross-cultural influences. She graduated from the Institute of Political Sciences in Paris and obtained a Master of Communication at the ESCP in Paris. She lives now in Beijing.
