Margaux Bigou was born in New Caledonia and draws on her island origins as she creates her illustrations. She seeks out her creatures hiding under shells, buried in warm sand, or lying in the depths of the sea. Her slippery and melancholic monsters can’t stand the heat and take refuge in experimental editions that blend screenprinting, riso printing, and patience. She lives now in Tahiti, French Polynesia and graduated from ENSAD Paris. She travels around the world to show her last zines (Printed Matter New York Art Book Fair, San Francisco Art Book Fair, Toronto Comic Art Festival…) She is also part of the collective Riso-sur-Mer.
