Sophie DRÉAN has always painted. As a child, her grandmother took her often to museums and art exhibitions in Paris. Back home, she tried to reproduce what she had seen.  So little by little Sophie has created her own universe, with Leon, a sort of bean on legs, Lucien, Lou and the others, all characters who are now systematicly present in her work. Five years ago, she finally wanted to show her paintings and to propose them to her relatives and friends.  Since then, many have joined new environments, in France, in Europe and even in America.  Sophie loves bright colors, gaiety, the "snowmen", big eyes, Japanese culture, New York…
Sophie Drean was born in 1973. She is married, has three children, and lives and works in Neuilly-sur-Seine, at the edge of Paris.
Exhibition at Chikabee Gallery, from July 2nd to August 11, 2016
