Manon Bellet is a French visual artist born in 1979, currently living and working in New Orleans. Over the last 10 years, Bellet has lived between Berlin, DE, and Basel, CH, where she was able to develop her artistic practice and exhibit in many international art Institutions, fairs, and galleries in Europe, as well as participate in residency programs in Europe.
Bellet has a broad teaching background, giving workshops in various schools and art academies in Switzerland. She first visited New Orleans in 2013. As an artist with an outside perspective and European background, she finds it stimulating to work in such a specific environment and helps to broaden her own practice, as well as develop projects that are directly related to the city and its specific geographical and environmental contexts.
