Delphine Lebourgeois studied Fine Art in Lyon then went on to complete a Masters in Illustration at Central St Martins in 2005
She works in various medium including digital, collage, pencil, pen, ink, watercolour and screenprint but her working process always starts with an initial collage of found elements.
Her most recent work draws from various stylistic sources (ranging from Botticelli to comics) mixing symbols and cultural references in a playful and sometimes irreverent way
In 2014, Lebourgeois created a whole series of original drawings on the power of crowds “The Girl has a Gun” that was launched at the Other Art Fair in October 2014. The works explored the realm of power relations and female emancipation.
Lebourgeois’ latest series are her most feminist to date, as her armies of women have progressively taken on a deeper meaning. Her 2019 Pink Collection explores both erotica, the power to assert one’s sexuality, and Mania, a look back on female repression.
Lebourgeois has also collaborated with The New Yorker, The Guardian, Le Monde, L’Obs, Amnesty International, Soho House and The Other Art Fair, where she continues to exhibit her work yearly. In 2019, several of her works were featured as street art in the latest edition of Need For Speed Heat, produced by EA Games. She is exhibited around the world, including in the UK, Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.
