Sybille Mathiaud was born in 1978 in Bergerac. Handling pencils and brushes from an early age, she began her Artistic Training at the age of 19 while pursuing literary studies at university. In 2000, she wrote her master’s thesis in Modern Letters on the travelling writer Nicolas Bouvier: a revelation that sets her on the "path that makes and breaks you" of the journey. After living, studying and exhibiting in Florence and New York, she moved to Paris in 2005 where she pursued her artistic research while teaching Martenot pedagogy. In 2018, she embarked on a new artistic adventure in Belgium: since then, she has shared her time between Brussels and Paris.
Sybille M’s work is divided into different "forms": techniques (oil, ink, collage, etc.), genres (abstract, figurative), subjects. Nature, her desires, human psychology are so dense and diverse that she likes to approach them from different angles and sensitivities, to better draw their outline and complexity.
The artistic residency in China in which Sybille M participates (2016) is a springboard in her creation. In recent years, a beautiful marriage of the Western spirit and the Far East has animated her work, inviting her to take a walk through the web according to her state of mind and emotions. Far Eastern art is by nature an invitation to the journey of the heart and mind. The ink leads you into the landscape of the soul.
An artist committed to his project choices (notably in the fight against human trafficking in collaboration with the NGO Planète Enfants & développement) and his way of working ( "through art, to develop the person", Ginette Martenot), his research on nature and man within this nature, necessarily lead him to fundamental ecological questions, which increasingly mark his work. An untiring fascination for the beauty of the world, a shock at the images of disastrous transformations induced by humans, pushes her today to seek solutions to better live together on this earth. Art is a wonderful medium for sharing, meditating, reflecting, reflecting, marvelling, feeling: to use without moderation! Art as a bridge between people, nature, awareness to mobilize.
