Project Description

Marie Boralevi is a French artist. Born in 1986.

In 2009, she graduated from l’Ecole Supérieure des Arts et Industries Graphiques (School of Graphic & Industrial Arts), Estienne, with a Master Craftsman’s degree for which she received an “excellent” rating. She also graduated with honors from l’Ecole Supérieure d’Arts Appliqués Duperré in 2011.

Marie Boralevi’s work has always included striking imaginary creatures. Her engravings and drawings bring to life the singular world that has been created by her thriving imagination. In 2013, she won the Pierre Cardin award for her engravings from the Académie des Beaux-Arts de l’Institut de France.

Since then, her works have been shown in the big international fairs of contemporary art such as DDessin in Paris (2014 and 2016); Art On Paper in Brussels (2014); Art Copenhagen (2014) or ST-ART in Strasbourg(2015).) Her engravings were shown at the Foundation Taylor in Paris; the museum Pierre Boucher in Canada (for the 8th international biennial of contemporary prints of Trois-Rivières); as well as in the BALL, Liège’s museum of Fine Arts (for the 10th international biennial event of contemporary engravings).
