Born in 1982 Paris, Amandine Urruty is a Pop Surrealist artist. After studying at University of Toulouse Plastic Arts and a brief career in underground music as singer, since 2012 Urruty devotes herself to draw her first loves, namely animals and humans figures.
Armed with a solid pencil technique and inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s, Tattoo art, Surrealism, Victorian photography, antique toys and Noir movies paintings, Urruty’s hyper-detailed world is one where references jump across time and space to define the artist’s own vision of modern culture. Moreover, Urruty’s monochrome artworks are pervaded by a sense of irony which brings back memories of childhood as well as creates state of joy and introspection. Since the beginning of her career, she took part in more than seventy exhibitions around the world.
She also published four monographic books: « Robinet d’Amour » (Les Requins Marteaux) in 2011, « Dommage Fromage » (United Dead Artists, 2014), « Certains l’Aiment Chiot) (Critères, 2018) and « The Party » (United Dead Artists, 2018). Her activity is now shared between exhibitions, illustration and wall painting.
