Marielle Plaisir

Men on Beach_edited.jpg


Marielle Plaisir is a French-Caribbean artist who combines painting, drawing, monumental installations, and performance to present highly intense visual experiences. Her work can be both poetic and socially meaningful as she blends life and fiction in both personal and historical narratives from the Caribbean. Universal themes of power, domination, and prejudice are intertwined with humor and beauty to convey humanity in our contemporary times.


Since 2002, Plaisir has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, and the USA. In 2021, Plaisir was the winner of the Southern Prize States Fellowship and a recipient of the Florida Prize at the Orlando Museum of Art. She was a recent resident at the Anderson Ranch Art Center, Colorado, and Oolite Arts, Miami Beach.
