< Emna DAOUD



Emna DAOUD was born in Tunis in 1998. She lives and works in Paris.

From 2002 to 2007, she grew up in Strasbourg, in the culturally rich Alsace region, with its exceptional architectural heritage and the many studios of artists such as Solange Chouchana and Myriam Kotrys, whom she frequented assiduously.
This experience awakened her artistic curiosity, and she began painting.

Between 2008 and 2016, she returned to Tunisia, where she painted in two renowned studios, those of Mustapha Raïth in “Sidi Bou Saïd” and Mhamed Ressaissi in “Carthage”. In August 2013, Emna was selected to co-exhibit with the painter Mhamed Ressaissi at “Galerie Hédi Turki”, “Sidi Bou Saïd”, Tunisia.

In 2016, she returned to France and settled in Paris.
After a preparatory year at the “Atelier de Sèvres”, Emna Daoud entered the “École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy” in 2017, from which she graduated with a DNSEP in 2022.

The artist is originating from “Sidi Bou Saïd”, an emblematic village of the richness and diversity of Tunisian culture, where Andalusian, Arab and Berber influences blend harmoniously and continually nourish her painting.
The decorative motifs of arabesques, local crafts and ceramics reveal an exceptional cultural heritage and have profoundly shaped and nourished her artistic identity.
The vivid and velvety texture of the fruits present in her daily environment in Tunisia is an invitation to an unforgettable sensory experience.
Emna would later rediscover these same sensations through the works of Louyse Moillon, a 17th-century still-life painter.
