Born in 1983, Alison Bignon is a visual artist of classical training (Beaux-Arts de Versaille). She is known for her method of making abstract portraits illustrating the real stories of her models.
Alison spends her days in her studio translating the emotions of her subject into a graphic vocabulary created, works on paper withvery fine details. She uses a traditional method of engraving, then finished byhand with details in watercolor, pencil and pen.
The purpose of this approach is to archive individual stories and give them an important and «nurturing» place in the great story.
