Du design graphique à l’art plastique, il n’y a qu’un pont. Et elle le traverse dès que ses projets à l’agence sont bouclés, comme on va se balader pour se régénérer. Graphic Designer depuis plus de 13 ans, Julie Télot fait évoluer son talent dans la sculpture. Après avoir fait danser typos, traits et teintes, elle laisse courir ses mains et ses pensées sur l’argile, pour le simple plaisir du beau. Le jury du Samudra Art Prize 2022 a été conquis par sa sensibilité : Julie a décroché, en juin 2022, le Best Amateur Artist Award.
Meet the jury member Gareth Pretorius: "Everybody is creative in Mauritius"
For the first time in its history, Mauritius found itself among the finalists for the Cannes Lions.
