Multidisciplinary artist, tireless researcher and professional observer, France Malo has, for 45 years, created an inspired and highly diversified body of work. In a variety of mediums, her research reveals her thirst for learning and experimenting.
Long settled in the Mont Saint-Hilaire region with her family, France Malo regarded her artistic calling as a vocation. In primary school she distinguishes herself by winning contests and welcoming minor artistic challenges that will soon hearten her. At eight years old, she tries her hand at sculpting with blue clay she finds behind the family home. Thanks to a contest initiated by Radio-Canada, she travels to Europe to attend an arts summer camp where her curiosity towards varied mediums is heightened. Among other things she discovers cinema, which she will later explore. At fifteen, she exhibits her works for the first time in a café, and launches her graphic design and illustration firm having garnered small contracts such as album covers and comic strips. “The comic strips introduced me to movement,” recalls the artist. “I was mostly aiming for technical perfection at that time.”Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.
