Rong Guo was born in Shanghai in 1979. She completed her undergraduate studies in visual communication in 2001 at the University of Shanghai. Wishing to perfect her technique in engraving as well as in painting, she arrived in France in 2003 and enrolled at the School of Fine Arts in Versailles. For 5 years, she specialized in engraving and graduated in 2009, with honors. Since then, she has been working at the workshop Contrepoint, located in Paris. Today, she works in her own engraving studio in the 13th arrondissement, where she handles color as well as black and white, with burin and intaglio. Her works tend to divert the daily life in a humorous way and thus allow to take distance from small events often felt as dramatic.
