About the event

A printmaker’s journey from graffiti artist to molecular scientist is exposed in the latest exhibition on display in The Long Gallery at Sheffield Children's Hospital.Sérigraphie by Florence Blanchard comes to Sheffield in collaboration with Artfelt, The Children’s Hospital Charity’s arts programme. It explores the French artist’s love of science and her creative evolution, from early cartoon-like figurative works to her current bold abstract pieces.Born in Montpellier, Florence cut her teeth as a graffiti writer on the streets of France before moving to New York in the early 2000s. It was in New York where the twin tracks of Florence’s talents really blossomed; painting and science. Following a decade-long urban apprenticeship creating murals for hip-hop festivals and private commissions, Florence began exhibiting her work in galleries in Brooklyn and Berlin. At the same time, she doggedly pursued her gift for science, gaining a PhD in molecular biology from New York University in 2008.Her scientific training directly inspires and informs her current art practice where bold geometric shapes, fluorescent colours and representations of particles collide in riots of abstraction.For this exhibition Florence Blanchard has produced ‘Blossom’, an exclusive limited print edition, which is only available at the hospital. All artworks are for sale and benefit Artfelt.
