Last year, the Toulousaine artist staged her first museum […]

Last October, Liqen spent some time in Vicenza, Italy, working on his newest lithograph at Busato Workshop. Working at the same table as Miró, De Chirico and Rafael Alberti did back in the days was quite an experience for an artist fully dedicated to creating traditional artwork.

Devenire Fetus Granata is part of the series “Behavioval” (Oval Behavior), the idea based on […]
