Florence Blanchard

Artist Biography

Florence Blanchard is a French painter, muralist and screenprinter based in the UK.

Blanchard was one of the first female graffiti writers in France and began working in the early 1990s under the name Ema. She then moved to New York where she graduated with a PhD from New York University in 2008. This coincided with a progressive shift in style, moving away from traditional graffiti and adopting a more abstract approach. The artist's recent work is directly inspired by her training as a scientist and depicts abstracts molecular landscapes questioning the idea of visual perception.

Blanchard has exhibited in galleries and public spaces in the US, Japan, Europe and Australia and recent projects include large-scale public murals in Japan and Tasmania for the Museum Of New and Old Art (Mona) in Hobart.
