Maite Soler
biography - links - contact

Artist born in Terrassa (Barcelona) in 1979
Maite Soler lives and works in Paris, France.

During childhood, Maite Soler oscillates between the practice of painting in different artists' workshops, and of kung-fu which she will bring up to the black belt. She then does a master's degree in sports and handicap in Barcelona, followed by a specialisation in contemporary dance in Montpellier, where she discovers by chance the charm of film photography. She explores this medium during a few years in Paris then in Chile. Once back, she earns the diploma from the Versailles School of Fine Arts (with honors). She meets Atsushi Takenouchi and the Butoh, which she practices since. Her exploration of movement continues in resonance with nature and the imaginary, while her works with ink and photography become danced abstractions.
