KAZoART artist since 2016
After studying at the Beaux-Arts, then in the mural art studio of the École des Métiers d’Art de Paris (ENSAAMA), Martine Lafont began her career by creating monumental frescos for theatre and public architecture. She then turned to scenography, exhibitions, events and visual communication. After a childhood spent in France, I lived a few years in Iran and then in Argentina, bathed in new influences for me. I have kept the fervent taste of the unknown and diversity, always present in my inspiration, I draw simple and raw emotions, always "off topic". The purpose of my paintings is to leave the lives of women and men outside the frame, to preserve their intimacy, and never to stage them. The elusive is found in my current research when I look out the window of a train being swept away by speed. Of course, the subject does not have time here to take a break and the easel becomes useless: 320 km/hour is the space-time I need to seize the chances of these improbable arrangements that you will never see again."
