Catherine Dupire

(Lille, 1949)

The rage to create

“What interests me in Art is adventure … CREATION, inventing its own language”

Catherine Dupire was born in Lille in 1949. An exuberant personality, she has been passionate about painting, drawing and poetry from a very young age.

She began painting in 1981 after staying in artist colonies in the former Yugoslavia and then on the island of Zakynthos, in Greece and also in Africa. It was from 1985 that she devoted herself full time to the visual arts.

His compositions are dotted with sentences or titles in an interrogative or exclamatory mode.
