    Monique Maillon-Bussière

    Painter | France


    Gold Medal of French Merit and Dedication
    Member of the European Academy of Arts



    Introduced to the arts by her family at an early age, Monique Maillon-Bussière was attracted to classical dance, painting and music. She stayed with her parents in the American bases of Laon and Chinon, a true immersion in the culture of the United States in all its splendor. Suffering from physical and psychological pain following a disastrous operation, she began to paint red abstract canvases at the age of nine. She already expressed a style that foreshadowed her future projects.

    Early career

    After working as an interpreter for a fashion house that entrusted her with the decoration of the Ritz Hotel gallery while studying, she taught briefly before leaving this position to work actively as a full-time painter in the 1980s.

    In the 90’s, her abstract paintings evolved as did her use of the color red. The use of gold dust and the combination of red, black and grey became more and more common, while her work was quickly recommended for exhibitions.

    International recognition

    In the 90s and 2000s, she becomes one of the most popular artists in France.
