Paskale MET

Born in 1970 in Angers, FRANCE

Lives and works in PARIS, FRANCE

From photography to painting

Paskale Met studied photography in Paris and New Zealand at the Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland. She then worked as a freelance photographer and traveled the world, from France to New Zealand via Japan and China, where she put down her bags for several years. Back in Paris in 2013, she discovered the works of painter Martin Bissière and decided to enroll in his studio at the ABA in Paris. Since then, the artist has devoted herself fully to painting.

A representation of memory

Paskale Met focuses her pictorial work on the notion of memory and turns to abstraction to represent a collective unconscious. It works in successive layers thanks to an erasing process allowing it to constantly move back and forth between the different layers. The starting point of her work, black ink symbolizes memory, an indelible past constituting our identity, which the artist counterbalances with exalted body language. 

An emerging artist

Paskale Met's work has earned him numerous exhibitions in France, including several times at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in Paris. She exhibited her works at Printemps des Poètes, an artistic event bringing together painters, visual artists, poets and musicians. She was also recently awarded the Painting Prize of the Contemporary Art Fair ARAMI. Along with his studio work, the artist develops improvisations combining painting, music and dance.
