Nitram Charcoal is always excited to hear of artists who enjoy using our products, but we are doubly enthusiastic when we hear of such works included in exhibitions! That is why we wanted to devote this blog to promoting an engaging new exhibition at the Atelier Artien in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil that opens this Friday, 11 November.
The show, entitled “Épure de l’Intime,” features the work of Marie Demeslay, a rising artist in the medium of charcoal. This show explores the boundaries of intimacy and examination as expressed in figure drawings and includes some of Demeslay’s most striking charcoal works, several of which were rendered using Nitram Charcoal.
The Atelier Artien is the creation of Edgar Saillen, an acclaimed artist with both a dynamic background and inherent talent as both draftsman and painter. Wanting to encourage other young artists, Saillen now devotes a substantial portion of his time to mentoring the members of his atelier, espousing within them the importance of indebted study and creative expression.
“Épure de l’Intime” is on view for a limited time, so make tracks to Montreuil if you can! For more information on the Atelier Artien, please visit the website. For more information on Edgar Saillen, please visit his website or stay tuned: he’ll be a featured participant in our upcoming “Contemporary Charcoals” interview installments!
