picture of the artist

Florence Traissac

My parents are originally from France, but I was born and raised in Milan, Italy. I remained there until I was 18 years old. I then moved to Paris and began my studies at Ateliers Met de Peninghen and later graduated from Ecole de Communication Visuelle (ECV) in graphic design and illustration.

I have always been inspired by art. Having lived in Italy, France and Australia – people, faces, streets, life, markets, shapes and moments in time…. Every place has a different story to tell.

Since moving to Hong Kong from Australia, it was clear to me that it was time to get the paint brushes out and let my mind draw my story of Hong Kong. This city inspires me every day: the sounds, colours, smells, words and images. There is always something happening.
