What if Instagram had always existed?
Laurence De Valmy combines her knowledge in art history and her skills in painting to appropriate iconic artworks and share their stories. Each artwork, created with acrylic, is a clever juxtaposition of an original painting and an imagined conversation historically accurate yet humorous.
Laurence de Valmy is a French born artist, who lives and works in Philadelphia, USA. Laurence was awarded an Artist Residency by the ESKFF at Mana Contemporary, USA in 2017.
De Valmy’s work has been shown in various group shows and major international art fairs in the USA, Europe and Asia. In June 2018, one year after the first show of her POST series, De Valmy’s work was at the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) in Munich showing alongside Andy Warhol in the exhibition The BUNTE Art. Her work can be found in prestigious private collections such as Hubert Burda Collection, Abrishamchi Family Collection and Eillen Kaminski Family Foundation.
