French Artist

Nathalie Laoue

Born near Cognac, in France, Nathalie LAOUE began to paint when she moved to Singapore in 2002. Nathalie is a self-taught artist. Although her original training was more focused on physical measurement and industrial design, her passion and talent are expressed through painting and photography.

Nathalie’s technique is rather unusual. She paints on canvas, using, brushes and knives,
acrylic or oil colors, but also resin, photographs and small inlaid sundries, which produce a quite unique effect of depth and demarcation. Nathalie instills a touch of realism in her subjects, which is reflected in a striking play of light and vibrant colors, a powerful contrast against the outline of the shadows and silhouettes.

Her latest work is exploring Singaporean heritage and culture through the quaint charm of Peranakan architecture, the exoticism of red ornaments along with the cutting-edge infrastructure. Nathalie took part in the AAF 2015, Spring Edition.
