Karine Rougier was born in Malta in 1982. She grew up in Ivory Coast and lives and works in Marseilles (France).
Drawing holds a special place in her artistic practice. She creates oil paintings on wood, drawn-on-film animation with Valérie Pelet, and drawings on paper or old documents that shed light on invisible worlds. The richness of details and painstaking precision give the scenes a dreamlike or even iconic dimension. She is represented by the gallery Espace à Vendre in Nice (France).
