Camille Soualem is a French artist born in 1993. She graduated from the Beaux Arts de Paris in 2018. She now lives and works in Paris.
The human figure occupies a central place in her artistic work. Human representations play a predominant role in her work, as she sees the body as a powerful vehicle for reflection, a territory to be explored. She sees the body as a form of resistance, constantly engaged in defence mechanisms against the hazards of everyday life. The figures she depicts are both fragile and powerful, emanating a duality between innocence and gentleness on the one hand, and the brutal force embodied by their imposing nudity on the other. Beyond the physical dimension, artist Camille Soualem is keenly interested in the mind, believing that “bodies think and thoughts themselves are bodies”. So her creations present us with characters deeply absorbed in their introspection, where their thoughts are reflected through their bodies.
