Gabrielle Rul is a 27-year-old model and multi-plastician who graduated from the Studio Berçot fashion design school. Rather than clothes, which she perceives as camouflage, it is the personality of people expressed through their looks that fascinates her. So it was faces and eyes that Gabrielle began to draw during the long hours she spent waiting for castings.
With a light and continuous line, often black and white, sometimes sprinkled with a touch of colour, she caresses the white paper of the cyclo backgrounds with a pure and spontaneous line, to express in Indian ink, pastel or watercolour, her own stories that everyone can appropriate.
Her work is inspired by life’s events, situations and encounters, mixed with her childhood memories. Influenced by a Vietnamese grandmother, agile with her hands and very creative, Gabrielle trusts her instinct and her experience to give free rein to her imagination.
Gabrielle Rul for Pierre Frey
The Pierre Frey design studio was seduced by Gabrielle Rul’s work and reproduced one of her eight-metre long pieces. Composed of an assembly of silhouettes and female faces, the drawing gently illustrates the artist’s abundant, authentic and poetic imagination.
