Koralie is a plastic, visual and urban artist, born in 1977, originating from a village in the Camargue area. Today she works in Biarritz and lives at the Basque coast with her husband SupaKitch and their two children.
Growing up in a creative and sensible family painting, drawing and modeling have been Koralie’s passion since childhood. She studied architecture in Montpellier from 1995 to 2001, when she discovered graffiti in Toulouse. This revelation led her to paint on the city walls in 1999. Since 2000 she devoted herself only to her artistic vocation, she finds herself in the „street art“ movement and soon emerges as established artist. She began to design and create her distinct characters Geishkas throughout 12 years of her live, some of them are still adorning the walls of the urban space. She stood out from the other graffiti artists because she created her own female character instead of letters. In her contemporary works they do not exist anymore.
Her techniques, surfaces and working materials vary according to the message and intention of the projects and for this the multidisciplinary artist works with paintings on canvas or murals, wooden sculptures, weavings, vector graphics and videos.
With SupaKitch, she regularly paints large murals in different cites of the world, such as New York, Paris, Rome, Cape Town, Frankfurt and Los Angeles. Their process is often edited on video by their friend and director D. Vignaux. Their animated film Romance in Plastic Minor, directed by A. Osmoze, has received several awards in France and abroad. In 2005 the multidisciplinary couple launches their fashion label Metroplastique, that includes products adorned by their arts and crafts. Koralie exhibited her art works in various international galleries in New York, Paris and San Fransisco, as well as contemporary art fairs like Salon du Dessin (Paris) and Bridge Art Fair (NY). Her art has also been shown in museums, such as the Museo del Juguete Antiguo México (Mexico) and The Museum of World Culture (Gothenborg). Besides collaborations with major brands, she has painted for the French Ministry of Culture and has been selected by the Mobilier National for the realization of an artwork for the collection of the French State Archives, the Manufacture des Gobelin in Paris.
