Aurelie Freoua is a French artist and performer living and working in London. She originally studied Mathematics and Economics in Paris but went on to study art and completed an MA in Fine Art at Camberwell College of Arts, London 2016. She also participated in the Slade Summer School.
Since then, her paintings have been exhibited in several group shows in London, New York, Miami, Paris and the South of France. Aurelie had several solo shows in London, including ‘Symphony of Colours’ in Mayfair (2017). Her artworks have featured in poetry collections including ‘Echoing’ published by Ampersand. She created a work specially for the Bonhams’ auction in support of the Grenfell Tower victims (2018). She has taken part in workshops organised by the Digital Maker Collective at Tate Exchange, Tate Modern.
Over the past two years, Aurelie collaborated more and more with the Vortex Jazz Club and improvising musicians, creating music and art simultaneously with the musicians and artists using similar sonic and visual approach. She has improvised live painting in response to music during The London Jazz Festival in 2017 and 2019; she curates and performs in multidisciplinary, experimental and immersive live performances called ‘Résonances’, merging visual art, musical performances, poetry and dance. Aurelie has designed covers for albums by Raphael Clarkson, Paulo Duarte and Henrik Jensen, released on Babel Label in 2019 and 2020.
She has recently worked on set designs and costumes for several theater plays at Theatro Technis alongside her acting performances. She created a mural painting ‘Misterioso’ (7m20 x 5m50) in Shoreditch, which was the backdrop for ‘The Dancing Wall’ performance. Aurelie is currently developing projects with musicians, poets and dancers for upcoming events.
Through her work, Aurelie aims to explore and transcend such notions as the invisible, movement, ephemerality and the intangibility of emotion through vivid colours and harmonious compositions of form, line and light. Throughout her practice she values authentic representation and intensity in a process of ‘making visible’.
