The acrylic with Rotring® ink works have a focusing on the japanese culture with her own ‘Kawai’ cosmology of characters, mainly centered around witchy nature burlesque girls and their strange animal companions.

Ciou was inspired by parades, carnivals and Hokkaï (a Japanese ghost). Her parade is a mix between a dark celebration and happiness. You can join her Black Parade and find new horizons. Let the magic begin!

Future Projects include her first book "Chat Siamois" with her first vinyl toy, with the scenarist Guillaume Bianco, venusdea editor and a lot of new drawings and paintings.
