Delphine Lebourgeois studied Fine Art in Lyon then went on to complete a Masters in Illustration at Central St Martins in 2005

Lebourgeois works in various mediums including digital, collage, pencil, pen, ink, watercolour and screenprint but her working process always starts with an initial collage of found elements.

Her most recent work draws from various stylistic sources (ranging from Botticelli to comics) mixing symbols and cultural references in a playful and sometimes irreverent way

in 2014, Lebourgeois created a whole series of original drawings on the power of crowds “The Girl has a Gun” that was launched at the Other Art Fair in October 2014: "My aim is to tell stories via precise scenarios that explore the realm of power relations whilst questioning Illustrative and Fine Art traditions"

Her latest collections "Heroes and Villains" and "Funny Games" delve deeper into the theme and question the part society plays towards its youth. They look into the fragility of innocence, the need for protection, and how young people in their desperate search to belong can sometimes turn to an extreme form of comfort.

Through varied scenarios reminiscent of childhood' games, Lebourgeois tells stories about vulnerability and disillusion, but also – like an antidote - rebellion and empowerment.
