Nathanaëlle Herbelin


Born in 1989 in Israel, she lives and works in Paris.

She received her Master’s degree from the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2016 and was invited in 2015 to attend the Cooper Union (New York, USA). She has enjoyed solo exhibitions in France, Belgium, the United States and Israel, and her work has been presented in numerous group exhibitions in France and Belgium.
In her research, entirely made of paintings of her surroundings, Nathanaëlle Herbelin creates bridges between the intimate and the political, between the personal and the universal: each painting is the result of an event or a relationship experienced and bears witness to the different contexts apprehended. Franco-Israeli and based in Paris since 2011, she continues to travel regularly to paint in her native country. From this territory, she still retains a taste for the desert, the silence and the culture of the Bedouins of the Negev, as well as a close link with nature. The whole of her work is underpinned by a contrast between a great tension and a certain softness. And his melancholy does not exclude, here and there, strokes of humor and a certain lightness. (Anaël Pigeat)
