Born in France, Béatrice Coron lived in Egypt, Mexico and China before moving to New York. Coron tells stories in illustrations, bookarts, fine arts and public art. She adapts her papercut designs in metal, stone and glass. More recently, she created wearable sculptures, 3D animated movie and an app. The output are numerous but the creative process starts with a story. Coron’s papercuttings were shown at Slash at the Museum of Arts & Design and she spoke about her creative process at TED 2011 and TEDx Cape May 2013. You can see her work in major collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center and her public art in subways and airports as well as in low income housing for fences and windowguards. Coron is currently working on installing permanent public art on 104th Street in Queens on the A train for the MTA and in Harbor Gateway Transit Center on the Metro Silverline in Los Angeles. Her first laser cut book “Eccentric City” was just published by Gallimard (ISBN-10: 2361932121).
