Born in Vannes, France, Emmanuelle Legavre quickly became interested in the various aspects of the creative world. She attended the Beaux-Arts de Nantes in 1989 and became particulary interesed in the Pop-Art period and American decorative art of the sixties and seventies.
In turn a designer for large publishing firms, an interior designer, sculptor or painter, she has worked constantly, obsessively and rigorously with materials, colours and volumes. On the strength oh her experience, and seeing no limits, she is today launching into ambitious contemporary art project with "MY CRAZY WORLD".
Just like a modern-day "Alice in wonderland ", Emmanuelle Legavre feels free to construct here a new world. she uses and reinterpret the symbols of popular world cultures in a highly personal, complex-free way. The play on shifts in saturated and powdery colours, precious and smooth as a mirror, take us to a world borrowed from pop-art cultures, influenced by famous emblematic figures such as Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons. Her Work, also articulated around outsize, Claes Oldenburg-style, disturbs the senses, overwhelming us.
With my crazy world, Emmanuelle Legavre questions the conventional perception of things, sublimating her vision and opening up dreamlike possibilities, making our dreams a reality.
Each of her works, with all their various phases of creation and application, is a real technical achievement. Together with her team of craftsmen and their studios locates close to Paris, Emmanuelle Legrave takes the greatest care with every stage in her works.
