Tess Dumon (b.1990) obtained her B.A. from Central Saint Martins and her M.A. from the Royal College of Art. Following several successful solo shows in Paris and Shanghai, Dumon’s work has been exhibited in Royal Ascot, Longines Masters, Christie’s Paris Tout P'tits Charity Sale, and Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris, Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, etc.

Tess Dumon’s work evolves on different mediums that include painting, sculpture, and installations. She aims to transform the tragic and dramatic history of the life around her into hints through mythical metaphors and a personal dreamscape. Tess Dumon places the audience in the center of her work with an atmosphere so powerful that people forget the mundane world. 
Having no clue about the origins of the illness of her brother with autism, Tess Dumon turned herself towards myths, symbols, and legends, at a very young age. As a matter of fact, they aim to answer all kinds of existential questions, from the birth of Mankind to the existence of earthquakes.

During her artistic studies, she started to create her very own mythology, including horses from her brother’s horse therapy sessions, handmade unique blue paint, poems...

Dumon tries to place the viewer at the heart of her work, aiming to transform the act of seeing into a performance itself.

The metal used in her sculptures reflects perfectly any incoming ray of light, giving her animals the appearance of ghosts floating in the air. The magic resulting from these lighting effects contrasts with the dramatic meaning of her work and the roughness of the material she sculpts by hands.

After a successful first solo show in Paris and the presence of her work in main events such as PAD Art Fairs, Royal Ascot, Longines Masters, etc., the young artist is preparing her next show, which will take place in Shanghai. Dumon is always seeking new challenges and opportunities to share her work and her story.
