Sylvie Feltesse

Biographical information/Professional background

Musician, fascinated by the typography and the beautiful letters, filled with musical rhythm, Sylvie Fetesse begins her creations in two or three letters ” in measure ” in a single movement, so linking the music which she always practises and her calligraphy.

After numerous years to study the drawing in the courses proposed by the Fine arts of Paris, Sylvie Feltesse acquired more and more ease and freedom in the movement, which aims to be unique, without resumption, as taken out of the hands of a conductor.

In October, 2012, she participated in the exhibition “The Insolites II”, meeting of writers and contemporary artists in Design Bastille Center where some of her monograms came to invite themself on the poems of the writer Yves Rajaud « Calligraphie sur le corps de la reine ». In February, 2015, Sylvie’s monograms were presented to city Hall of Paris on the occasion of the exhibition “Design and Arts and crafts ” where the Parisian creators invited the creators of Berlin. At the end of August, 2015 went out the art book « Femmes d’art des Métiers d’art » where a double spread is dedicated to her.

In March, 2016, Sylvie presents a calligraphy of several monograms and their interpretations engraved to the museum Mendjisky of Paris within the framework of an exhibition « De Main de Maître ».

The French Arts Factory presents the artworks of the artist on the occasion of the exhibition “Un air de Paris ” in June 2016.
