“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” ― Pablo Picasso
Born in Iran in 1979, raised in the Netherlands and based in Paris, Vianne Savoli is a painter, author, journalist and financial markets professional.
Her painting style is a mix of Pop art and Art Deco painting inspired by the Belle Epoque spirit. Each painting is put together like a scene from a movie with a narrative, characters and details, combining the real and unreal. The stories are mostly inspired from Vianne's direct experiences, literature, philosophy, opera as well as the pop culture and social and psychological questions.
The characters created by Vianne - women with long legs and men in suits - play a central role in the compositions. They deliver their message to the viewer anonymously and expressively through their silhouettes and clothing styles, by orchestrating a scene together, with a non-conformism that cannot be told in real life.
