CHLOE POIZAT is an artist and illustrator working in Paris. Her work employs the transformation of printed images that participate in the genesis of all her projects, and also in micro narratives in which the absurd and black humor cohabit to make a new grammar of the imagination. Her images—peopled with mutants and monstrous animals—transform the extreme naiveté of their content into a true “noir exoticism.” The montage and collage appear as recurrent preoccupations of her work, notably through the intersemiotic relationships that they engender in their liaison with the question of the diffusion of images. Since 1993 her images have been published in Liberation, Le Monde, Le Magazine Litteraire, XXI, The Drawbridge, The New York Times, and elsewhere. She has produced book covers, posters for musical theater and films, and numerous limited edition art books that have received international prizes. Her work is regularly exhibited in France and abroad, and has a permanent residence at Galerie Martine Gossieaux.
