French painter, Florence Blanchard, is a muralist and screenprinter based in the UK. Her work is directly inspired by her training as a scientist and depicts abstracts molecular landscapes questioning our idea of visual perception. In the early 1990’s Blanchard began writing graffiti under the name Ema. Since then her work has evolved in new directions of abstraction, transforming her letters into shapes, providing a frame for experimentation with composition and colour.
Blanchard spent 10 years studying in New York, where she graduated from New York University with a PHD in 2008. Her background in science has continued to inspire her work.
