To seize a visible world to express it in its reflections and in the suggestion, that is my craftmanship.
Shahine was born and spent her early years in Madagascar where her parents were working, but they quickly returned to France for their children's education. She studied in a business school in Paris where her creative instinct led her to carry out all of her internships in creative fields (textiles, design). She returned regularly to Madagascar where she was irresistibly drawn to the ambiance of the markets: colours, prints, pigments… Her friends and family encouraged her to devote herself to her art and so she decided to make it her living, and so began her artist life.
Shahine sublimates the colours through a respect of the medium, the handling of the knife and the brush. A judicious mix of tones produces a light that fills her canvas with life. She plays with daring contrasts, using oils with much respect for the majesty of this material. Her knife work is executed with vigour and spontaneity. Shahine uses the sensuality of oils to release an alchemy somewhere between serenity and passion. The richness of daily life, meetings, cultures and colours (like the red earth of Madagascar) are all emotions that mark her life and her work. Shahine's approach consists of expressing the visible world in her reflections and suggestions. Every day offers her a multitude of artistic propositions.
