From letters to geometric shapes, words and characters, a huge number of elements go into Hélène Bautista's work, but it is the combination of white and black that creates the perfect balance found in her productions. The observer’s gaze delights in exploring the light and contrast.

Graphics and minimalism

Not only is Hélène Bautista an accomplished artist, but she is also the author and illustrator of a number of graphic novels and albums. With many strings to her bow, she guides us through a universe of sketches that are almost devoid of colour and yet incredibly striking.

Trademark contrast

From letters to images, we find words and ink in all their forms and all their states, constantly communicating through Hélène Bautista, speaking to one other.

We find the constant exploration of black and white, the artist searching for a balance or imbalance that will speak to her imagination, insatiably feeding on light and contrast. And occasionally colour. Images, the imaginary, and imagination, which summon the senses and invite meaning.
