Florence Blanchard adopted the moniker ‘Ema’ in the early 90′s when she began spray-painting the walls of her home town Montpellier, inspired by the worldwide graffiti phenomenon and its instantaneous appeal. It wasn’t long before her works adorned buildings and trains in the South of France, Barcelona, Paris and throughout Europe, before moving across North America.
Flo kindly took time from painting and travelling the world to answer a few of our questions.
I am a French painter.
To be able to share my visions with others.
That I can create it the way I want it.
A mash up of all the people I met, music I listened to, films I watched, books I read and countries I travelled to.
Unfortunately I’m going to have to say Ryanair. But it’s a love and hate relationship.
The 48 hours long ones.
