Born in Paris in 1956
The woman at the heart of street art
Miss Tic was born in 1956 in Paris, where she grew up and where she began stencil in 1985.
Miss Tic quickly established herself in the world of street art with her images of seductive women with powerful messages. Theartist questions both the passer-by and society about the types of behaviors she wants to denounce.
Through urban art, Miss Tic abolishes the separation betweenexhibition space and artwork,offering her street artwork, in the streets, to every observer.
A visual artist and poet, a parisian socialite and eccentric, Miss Tic was considered a leading artist ofurban art in the late 1980s.
Theartist practices the tag at a time when this art form is still condemned by the authorities. Miss Tic persisted, until artistic recognition put her in the shelter.
Relentlessly, she will record on any medium female silhouettes presenting a disturbing resemblance to their creator, playing simultaneously on the intimate and the public, with humor and lucidity.
At the turn of the 2000s, Miss Tic began to be acclaimed by major brands, from haute couture(Kenzo)to the automobile, through leather goods(Louis Vuitton).
In 2007, Miss Tic entered the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the filmmaker Claude Chabrol proposed to her to direct the poster for her film The Girl Cut in Two.
Miss Tic‘s artworks are reproduced in 2011 on a notebook of 12 stamps produced by La Poste.
And in 2019, this French street art artist has conducted two major exhibitions: one in La Sorbonne, and another in the National Assembly.
Between perennial artworks and ephemeral performances, between stencil, collage and painting, Miss Tic continues to assert her place as a major actress in the world ofurban art.
