ciou ‘bio in Japanese language here :

フランスのアーティスト、Ciouによる夢と悪夢のあいだをさまようもの、“necro-kawaii”(怖カワイイ)キャラクターたち。バッドガールな女子高生たちがノートに落書きするような絵にも似たCiouの描くチャーミングな魔女と動物のペアは、遊び心溢れるダークさを表現している。刺激的だけど甘い、そんな世界の中で、Ciouの描く女の子たちはちょっぴりコワイけど愉快ないきものと仲間になったりと、冒険を楽しんでいる。  Ciouは多種多様な文化から影響を受けており、1930年代、1970年代のアメリカ文化からビクトリア様式やロココ調を取り入れ、それらを日本の伝統的なアートやポップカルチャーのモチーフと融合させている。アクリル絵の具とインクのコラージュの土台となるのは古い医学書、辞書、図鑑などのヴィンテージ・ペーパーや独自のミックスメディアである。鮮やかでサイケデリックな蛍光色は、強迫的なまでに描き込まれた黒い線画との好対照をなしている。Ciouは若くしてコンテンポラリー・ポップアートとロウブロウアートのアーティストの1人として世界に認識され、2004年にニューヨークのFlux Factory Galleryで行われたショウをきっかけとして世界中で作品を発表、2010年にRoq La Rue Galleryで行った「Mysterious Flowers」で個展デビューを果たし、以降はアメリカ、アムステルダム、パリ、バルセロナ、ローマ、ベルリンなどといったヨーロッパの各都市で作品を発表し続けている。2014年にはKochxbosよりイラストレーションブックやアンソロジーを発表。各国のテレビ、雑誌などの媒体でも作品が紹介され、またソフビやデザイナーファッションアクセサリーなどの商品制作にも関わり、エキサイティングなラインアップを発表している。
