Nathalie Du Pasquier is a French painter and designer, who has been based in Milan, since 1979. She is known as one of the founding members of the influential Memphis Design group, that was set up by designer and architect Ettore Sottsass in 1981. Her early work for Memphis is notable for its vibrant use of colour and arresting use of pattern. Alongside her two dimensional designs, she created a range of jewelry, furniture, textiles and clothing for Memphis, before solely dedicating herself to painting from 1987 onwards. All of her work has been internationally exhibited. She is a truly intuitive self-taught artist of high standing, her work has recently been exposed to a whole new generation, who are rediscovering her fine use of colour, abstract constructions and impossible structures.
