About Clo'e Floirat

Clo’e Floirat’s charming drawings comment on contemporary cultural events, often with a satirical edge. Her subjects have included the London Olympics, the Battersea Power Station, The Pritzker Architecture Prize, and monumental public art projects by Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren, and Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. The narrative sketches, often explored in multi-part series, are paired with puckish one-liners. “It is a challenge to express ideas with just two pieces of information: the design and the punch line,” Florait has said of her recent work. “For me, the two are inseparable; it's really a whole. Without words, I find that my drawings look almost naked.”
