Strongly influenced by a childhood where she and her family marched in support of Angela Davis and her acolytes, a fervent admirer of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ronie.J, though never claiming to be a militant, was inspired by these black models who had the strength to move forward despite the obstacles encountered, existing by what they had achieved. But she also discreetly expresses her kin and her more personal feelings. She looks to the future with sci-fi-esque representations. Often very colourful, emotional and symbolic, her work is spontaneous, instinctive, and created in the immediacy of inspiration. Ronie.J explains her working process: "I do not have a regular production and I do not tie myself to anything but when I have an idea in mind, I put myself instantly to work for several hours until my canvas coincides with the vision I have had. I think an artist is sleeping in each of us and it’s wonderful to let them express themselves."
Born in 1960 in Paris, Ronie.J began her artistic journey with painting, then moved on to sculpture and pottery. From exhibition to exhibition, country to country and wall to wall during her urban wanderings, she nurtured a passion for street art while gradually experiencing the urgent need to express her experience and emotions through her work.
Undivided artist, she now practices collage and uses various techniques (acrylic paint, pastel pencil, colour bombs, photos, drawings) to produce her compositions in monochrome or in colour.
