JOYCE BILLET
b. 1985, Paris, France

Joyce Billet is a practicing artist that merges her forward-looking technical expertise with conceptual ideas. Her background in architecture has influence on her work which plays with materials and scale to mix the sensations of painting and sculpture. She explores the tensions and relationships, between the natural and the artificial, between the unique and the mass produced, between tradition and progress. She has been selected to participate in group shows juried by curators such as Maurizio Pellegrin, Heather Darcy Bhandari and Margaret Carrigan. In 2019, she was picked by a committee of art world experts as one of 130 talented independent and emerging artist to participate in The Other Art Fair in Brooklyn.

 

Billet graduated with a Bachelor’s in Architecture from Pratt Institute and in 2010 she received a Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. Billet worked at firms such as Norman Foster in London and Studio Daniel Libeskind in New York. 
She then went on to apply her artistic skills as an in-house architectural designer at Chanel. Billet is a French-American artist who currently lives and works in the US.
