I bought a few postcards by Piu many years ago, as souvenirs. I was walking nearby the Cathedral of Strasbourg when I saw them. It's not my kind of thing, I'm a very shy tourist, but I purchased them with a certain enthusiasm. They were part of a series of smart cards which mainly make fun of well known brands' commercials and create new, very enjoyable fake advertisements.
Since they are still my favorite view entering our place in Dublin, yesterday I decided to look for other works of hers. I discovered that Amandine Piu, aka Piu Piu, was born in 1982. From Sardinia she first came to France to study visual communication in Lyon, then moved to Strasbourg, where she graduated in Decorative Arts. And that she still live and work in the Alsatian capital.
Anyway, I love her sense of humor, the plays on words, the "roundness" of her work. I think she's a very talented, and complete artist! By the way, I found out after many collaborations, prizes etc, she's now publishing children literature as illustrator (this), as illustrator and coauthor (that), as both illustrator and author (here).
