Laëtitia Giraud’s painting finds its iconographic genesis in her personal photographs.
They take on the function of referent, less machines for seeing reality than machines for imagining her future painting.
This work questions the ambiguity of realism in painting.
If it is indeed from an image, from this -instrument-tool- that a rereading of reality takes place, it is to convert it completely through the human prism.
Laetitia Giraud is a painter, and it is through an instinctive release of colour, recomposition, the notion of detail, drips, etc. that the artist shows us what a photograph does not.
In her work, there is a very particular jubilation in perverting the original image and making it highly pictorial, another world in short.


Laëtitia Giraud is a painter born in 1979 in Paris.
After obtaining two Master’s Degrees (Applied Arts and Plastic Arts) at the Vauban University of Nîmes, she continued her career with training in visual communication and then training at the Center for the Study of Artistic Partnership and Intervention (CÉPIA) at the School of Fine Arts in Bourges in 2013.
During her studies, the artist quickly created procedures to paint at her own pace : she chose acrylic for its drying speed and developped systems to obtain her specific blurs.
In 2010 Laëtitia Giraud Faces her work as a painter with a personal exhibition, Faire Face, and takes part in St-Lô’s painting symposium Tâches-Taches. After devoting 10 years of her work to portraiture, she decided to paint urban landscapes at night.
In 2014 she won the second prize of La Source PalissʼArt painting competition in Eure.
Today, Laëtitia Giraud paints intimate still lifes, neon nudes, gas stations, nocturnal landscapes… always in vibration.
In 2023 she won the Frédéric de Carfort painting prize sponsored by the Fondation de France eand presented Story Board, a solo show of her lastest works.
The artist is represented by Galerie Jamault in Paris, Galerie ArtFontainebleau and Galerie 1809 in Marseille..
