Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) was a French artist best known for her sculptural female figures known as “Nanas”. Colourful, patterned, and crafted in a variety of shapes and sizes, these sculpted women embody de Saint Phalle’s feminist spirit.

Niki de Saint Phalle, like other artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Van Gogh, Picasso or Jean Cocteau, liked to illustrate her letters. This nearly extinct practice is now recognized as the “mail art movement”. It began in the 1960s when artists sent postcards inscribed with poems or drawings through the post.

In these two unique drawings, Niki de Saint Phalle’s personality illustrates her dreams and vivid imagination. The ornamentation also let room for a long message written in French.

Saint Phalle’s drawings are like pages of a diary. She mixes text and image to reveal her innermost thoughts and fears in works that retain a certain irony and humour by combining reality with her imaginary creatures.

They reveal the artist’s personality and are testimony to her artistic voice.
