Valérie Depadova - painter
"I bring together all the pieces of my emotional puzzle and try to share these emotions on canvas so that everyone can transpose their own story there."

Entering into the mobility of singular art, Valérie Depadova is an artist and painter born in 1965 in Algiers who now works in the Gard region of France.

Inspiration comes from elsewhere

Cradled by the sweet images of her childhood passed on the Algerian coast at Bou-Haroun, Valérie Depadova started drawing and painting at a young age.  From objects that her father brought back from his military missions elsewhere in Africa to the souvenirs of her trips to India and Asia as well as the warm colours of her native country, the artist has never ceased to be inspired by other cultures.  She thus delivers, with a determined and instinctive touch, works that have astonishing ethnic connotations as a tribute to women the world over.

A « singular » technique

Paying great attention to her materials and backing, Valérie Depadova handles acrylic, pastels, Chinese ink, graphite or collages with equal ease.  She works her colours with a strong knife and alters papers, newspapers, magazines and old encyclopaedias that she reprints, crumbles, repaints and assembles in several layers.  On an abstract background, the artist sows words onto the canvas and stylised human forms whose postures cannot but remind us of African aesthetics.

A benevolent look at the world

The works of Valérie Depadova depict scenes from daily life and have a fundamentally universal scope.  Watching human beings with benevolence, the artist, through her paintings, encourages us to question the world that surrounds us and to use colour as a defence against sadness.  Through the staging of her characters, the artist delivers us a message of joy, tenderness and, above all, love.
