The Nahualli Creative Marathon drawing contest, held in the midst of the pandemic, at the end of April this year, became the starting point for many artists who are fond of drawing, as well as a new showcase for emerging and professional artists. And in this case, an inspiring couple.
Also, with great talents and outstanding work, the winners and honorable mentions were also chosen for giving us a look at the depths of their art and for their dedication in creating fifteen works throughout the Creative Marathon.
Thus, this month, we dedicate the pages of our blog to two of the Honorable Mentions of the Nahualli Creative Marathon, corresponding to the “Emerging” category: Megane Pibolleau and Tóxico Moreno, who besides being artists with promising careers, once our Marathon was over, we discovered that they have a relationship as a couple, where their love for art has become its main axis, and for which chance came to unite them casually among our outstanding artists.
Megane Pibolleau, Honorable Mention Creative Marathon 2020, Category: Emerging
26-year-old emerging artist, of French nationality and currently based in the city of Mérida, Yucatán.
Her artistic training took place at the Public University of Nimes, France, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Applied to Design. Sh has exhibited on multiple occasions in France and Mexico; she belongs to a collage collective, designs jewelry, and is also a graphic designer and illustrator.
The artist has created drawing projects, such as “CARNE MOLIDA”, for which she made more than fifty illustrations, in a series that aims to be the translation of a remnant of memory and graphic interpretation of her dreams. The production of this project is constant, as the artist continues to draw, following the same theme in order to appreciate the evolution of her interpretation.
“For this series and for all the others I chose to work with the black line, since I work intuitively, this allows me greater freedom in applying automatic or instinctive drawing. I think that with a black pen my hand is freer.” – Megane Pibolleau
