Holder of a graduate degree in graphic arts from the Pivaut school in Nantes as well as a Master MEEF from the Faculty of Plastic Arts of Rennes 2, Sarah Nyangué alias Saratoustra is an illustrator from Nantes who lives and works in Nantes currently.
Her particular attraction to the practice of portraiture was born after a trip to Cameroon in 2009 where she made many drawings in her travel diary. A year later, the exchanges with the painter-photographer Titouan Lamazou during an internship carried out in his workshop in Paris, will definitively sign this love for the human figure.
She also cultivates the desire to get involved with young people by leading workshops allowing access to the culture and practice of drawing by investing in different structures in France as well as internationally (Europe-Asia-Africa ). Back in France in 2017, she settles and settles in Nantes where she divides her time between her creative work, and the educational projects that she coordinates within different educational and associative structures. At the same time, since 2018, she has been involved in collective actions in order to pool her plastic practice with other actors in the visual arts as well as in performing arts. She began to exhibit her screen printing work in galleries, salons and designer markets since 2019. Today, her work can also be found in the press: Le Monde, Le Nouvel Obs, Le nouveau magazine Littéraire etc ...
Sarah's work is an exploration of the intimate and the unspeakable. The human: his mysteries and his contradictions, his questions and his doubts, are what inhabit his creations. The portait therefore came naturally to her. His clean designs allow him to pay particular attention to the composition and expressiveness of his images.
His sources of inspiration are diverse; a few surprised sentences on a street corner, trips, but above all fleeting and incongruous moments which, according to her, are calls to poetry.
