Kyliss was born in Fontainebleau in 1993. Attracted by art she chose to take jewelery studies during four years. Since she discovers the design, she finds a real passion and jat only17 years old she turns to this art that deepens self-taught in her free time. Kyliss, like many young people of her generation, identifies herslef in tatoos. She works to identify the sources and draws on readings, stories and exhibitions to deepen the topic of belonging. Tattooing is no longer a marginal phenomenon. Present in all societies its existence marked by exclusion in Asia and Europe, cultural belonging in the tribes, today emphasizes a strong identity beyond the fashion effect.
Kyliss presents us with this exhibition "TranGenerational Tattoo" a fact of society and replace the tattoo as an art in itself. The artist with a promising future offers us a remarkable artwork full of rightness and emotion. A perfect line, an integrated sensitivity and incredible willness characterized this new artist.

An unforgettable encounter!
Kyliss, then 20 years old, sent us by email a presentation of her work. She then made drawings on A4 format. I was seized by the drawings of this young woman. An unusual technical mastery. We then decided to keep in touch and she regularly sent me her drawings by e-mail. A few months later, Kyliss came to Bordeaux and we met, we watched together her drawings, drafts and all she could achieve. Unaware of her abilities, this young woman has agreed to test herself on a large format. Some time later I received a photo of the work that foreshadowed the full potential of this young artist.
We agreed to schedule an exhibition and Kyliss worked tirelessly for more than a year to create the exhibition's drawings. The public was not mistaken, the first exhibition was a real success. Since then, this young artist has been gaining in sensitivity and technicality. I did not know how she could surprise me yet, and yet each piece surpasses what we can imagine.
Alias Lebaudy is a self-taught artist. The engraving entered his life by chance, a simple mistake in the Canson paper sleeve transported him as if by magic beyond all imagination. In front of him this black support to animate,
"Scratch card", absolute black under a virginal white layer.
He still had to scratch the obscure matter, find words, put his soul into it.
So much wealth, so much baseness accumulated in an existence. This existence has finally posed, spread like a perfume of eternity on the material of predilection.
So many claws, as hazards of life to embellish, to make volutes and arabesques, to magnify.
Faith, hope on the tip of a blade.
Serenity, of the one who is moved by her dreams. The artist will humbly say of his work: "What a majestic chance to have found the extension of his eyes, his hand, his being...... »
The gallery’s words
I discovered Alias Lebaudy's work on the Internet. First challenged by the art of engraving to which I was not really sensitive, I found myself magically entering her universe. The deep blacks delineating majestic curves captivated me. We first met several years ago. This atypical artist touched me with his sincerity and passion for this art. He offered me one of his engravings which quickly found its place in my living room. Every day I take real pleasure in looking at her and immersing myself in this sometimes-mystical universe. One morning the decision was made I was going to present his work to art lovers and make them discover a contemporary, timeless engraving.
