PITU

PITU

PITU is a young 25 year old painter born in Martigues, a town near Marseille.

Her painter's name has been her nickname since childhood. She grew up in an artistic atmosphere surrounded by a family of painters. PITU is inspired by influential people in the world of painting such as Max Rovira, Robert Combas, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jean Dubuffet and many others.

Passionate about bright colours, Pitu uses different materials such as acrylic paint, spray can, oil pastel or charcoal.
Her first works are oriented towards free figuration and art brut. She creates characters of her own, with deformed faces, sometimes flayed; a way for her to sublimate the emotions transcribed in her colourful canvases.
