She also won the Spéos 2022 end of year jury prize in Fine Art.

Born in 1998, Diane-Laure Mussy lives and works in Paris. Through various series, she shows the world of the subtle and invisible in order to better understand and accept one’s own sensitivity. Her work brings out images bordering on the figurative and the abstract, using unconventional lighting, so as to create what she has imagined. She invites the viewers to let go emotionally and focus on colour and texture.
