Linet Andrea

Ancy-le-Franc, France
Artist (Drawing, Painting)
Born 1969


Multidisciplinary artist Linet Andrea discovered the contemporary circus during her BA at Chelsea College of Art in the early 90s. 

She began a parallel life of both trapeze training and art-making during her degree in Sculpture & Multimedia, for which she earned 1st class honors.

Linet felt that contemporary art needed the real danger, truth, dynamism and humanity that the circus had to offer. She left London to immerse herself in aerial training, and was admitted to the National Circus School of France (CNAC) completing her diploma at the age of 27. 

Linet continued her career touring internationally into the late 90's with the companies Archaos and Cahin Caha, and started drawing and painting consistently.

In addition to performing, she exhibited her artwork on tour and quickly attracted collectors to the particularity of her charcoal lines and figurative themes of live performance.

In 2000, Linet settled in Burgundy, France and founded both a family and a gallery space, Angstrôm. She curated exhibitions and events mainly around her own paintings and drawings, still primarily based on circus, but also in collaboration with other artists, designers and performers.

Linet has exhibited internationally in renowned spaces such as the Yerba Buena Centre, San Francisco, USA; Sapporo Art Park, Japan; La Villette, Paris, France among others and has created numerous private and public commissions, including 14 stations of the Cross for the Heritage Foundation of France.

Linet Andrea works in her Burgundy studio and places gestural freedom at the heart of her artistic process.  

An exhibition "Dreaming Mutiny" was held in 2022 on the theme of sexuality and female emancipation.

Liberation from various forms of oppression is the main theme of her current work.
