Rainbow / Mademoiselle Maurice

Posted in Architecture - Installation by * FORMAKERS [ GM ]

The latest art installation by 28 year old Paris based French artist Mademoiselle Maurice adorns public space with beautiful geometric patterns expressed in colorful origami elements that populate public walls.

Artist Bio: After she grew up in the mountains of Haute-Savoie (France),  studied architecture in Lyon and worked in Geneva and Marseille, she lived one year in Japan. Actually based in Paris, she devoted herself entirely to colorful creations, whose thought process was initiated few years ago.

With different mediums such as origami, lace, photography, or painting and embroidery, she creates naive works at first sight, but deep and sensitive, in a constantly connection with the events encountered during her daily life.

Beyond her studio which is a very small space, she decided to devote herself to the world of the street, an open air museum, for achieve huge urban performances and installations, created with a lot of origami.


Some positive and colorful creations that transmit an emotion that everyone can appropriate in a subjective manner. Beyond  the appearances, Mademoiselle Maurice seeks to deepen the link between individuals who form that human network which we belong and we frequent every day.


It also highlights the interactions between humans and their environment to highlight and resonate the Human / Nature link.

A progressive reflection that tends not to give answers but ask, subjugates, reflects, idealizes and offers ways of escape and colorful and abstract thoughts into a reality as repulsive as attractive..
