Anne-Lise Coste was born in Marseille, France, in 1973. She studied in her native city and in Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to New York where she currently lives and works. Her drawings and texts have the immediacy of graffiti, and allow her to express subjective moods mixed with social and political criticism. With a dada-influenced language and intensely lyrical images, her work exudes irony, rebellion and great emotion. She creates seemingly decorative compositions that actually offer us a catalogue of contemporary anxieties.
