Writing is the basis of Yona Grandjean’s artistic approach. She likes heavy, thick, almost raw letters. For this reason it remains in a great sobriety of colors that better emphasizes the line.

His current work revolves around the collapse, deconstruction, fall, bursting, the disturbance of the letter in its transformations.

In a moving and fragmented architecture, letters are connected by entangled lines that circulate and transform them into constructions crossed by red lines, horizon, fixed point in chaos.

Process: It mainly uses Chinese ink and acrylic. Paper is important, she loves her material and works both freely and on canvas to give it a certain rigidity that allows her to play with her material and use the "accidents" on the ground.

She lives and works in Paris.
