    After training at the atelier of Sèvres in Paris, young talented artist Tess Dumon(b.1990) moved to London for pursuing sculpture studies in Central Saint Martins and finished her MA in Royal College of Art where she won the prize of Degree Show in 2016. In 2014 won the first prize of Born Award which celebrates creativity in design-led lifestyle with a focus on desirability, functionality, and integrity. Following successful solo shows in Paris and Shanghai, Dumon’s work has been featured in main events such as PAD Art Fairs, Shanghai Westbund Art & Design Fair, Royal Ascot, Longines Masters, Christie’s Paris Tout P'tits Charity Sale, and a special exhibition at Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris, etc.

    Tess Dumon’s work evolves on different mediums that include drawing, sculpture, animation, and installations. She aims to transform the tragic and dramatic history of the life around her into the hints concealing in her works through mythical metaphors and a personal dream world. Tess Dumon tries to place the audience in the heart of her work to experience the atmosphere which can be so powerful that people forget the mundane world.

    Having no clue about the origins of the illness of her brother with autism, Tess Dumon turned herself towards myths, symbols, and legends, at a very young age. As a matter of fact, they aim to answer all kinds of existential questions, from the birth of Mankind to the existence of earthquakes.

    During her artistic studies, she started to create her very own mythology, including horses from her brother’s horse therapy sessions, handmade unique blue paint, poems...

    Dumon tries to place the viewer at the heart of her work, aiming to transform the act of seeing into a performance itself.

    The metal used in her sculptures reflects perfectly any incoming ray of light, giving her animals the appearance of ghosts floating in the air. The magic resulting from these lighting effects contrasts with the dramatic meaning of her work and the roughness of the material she sculpts by hands.

    After a successful first solo show in Paris and the presence of her work in main events such as PAD Art Fairs, Royal Ascot, Longines Masters, etc., the young artist is preparing her next show, which will take place in Shanghai. Dumon is always seeking new challenges and opportunities to share her work and her story.
