Dotty for walls

  • • Alix creates striking murals
  • • Her technique is a modern pointillism
  • • She turns tiny dots into emerging shapes

Alix Waline has chosen a simple idea and takes it seriously. The decorative painter has dedicated herself to her own painting technique of abstract pointillism, where she uses small dots to make large organic shapes. Most often her canvas is walls of private homes or luxury boutiques, and her brush is a felt marker with which she makes her murals composed of many tiny marks. Alix studied History of Art at the Sorbonne and Fine Art at Beaux Arts de Paris, finding her way into the world of art was a little miracle in her eyes. As an adolescent she was more interested in music and never thought she would eventually become an artist. As she had lots of artist friends, she became curious and found herself exploring art, liking it and eventually studying it.
