Cecile CANTELE

BIOGRAPHIE

Cecile Cantele was born in France in 1966. At the age of 10 she attended her hometown Art school of Chalon sur Saône. She was already drawing the wild animals that later became her specialty when she worked for Haute Couture brands like Hermes, Céline and Scherrer, creating scarf prints designs.

After she graduated, she travelled to the U.S.A, the United-Kingdom, Germany, so she could become filled with new influences and inspirations.   Fresco work, is a technique she feels affecting for. Indeed, this kind of mural painting allows her to share and communicate her sensitivity, through trompe-l’œil artworks created for public spaces and private clients.  At 12, she decided to join and become a WWF association member. At this moment she began to feel concerned and moved by the matter of animal rights. She read Gerald Durell’s books, a naturalist with whom she had an epistolary relationship for many years.

The artist creates figurative painting in which children and wild animals wander in cities ruins. Graffitis are a reminder of what humans left behind, as if it was a modern form of cave painting and a witness of our time on earth. Kids and their totem animal took over the world where there is no more predators. The symbiosis is created by the association of the kids and their fetish animal as their companion. Animal stands like a spiritual guide. Cecile Cantele ‘s art is a form of art-ivism exploring the effect the humanity have on the environment. She also imagines through her art the future of mankind or what will be left of it.
