I am a French creative graduated in visual communication specializing in illustration.

I initiated my studies in applied art back in 2010 where I graduated from E.S.A.A.T, Roubaix, France (2010/2012). My studies were concentrated around visual communication, focused on print option : graphic design, edition, publicity. In 2013, upon graduation, I used ERASMUS program to continue my studies at BAU, Barcelona, Spain. I lived in the capital of Catalunya for six years and worked a lot toward one aim : to improve my own style as an illustrator. To this end, I also exhibited in few places like cafés and restaurants. In addition, in March 2018, I had the chance to be invited to the international “OpeARTion” festival in Hagen, Germany where I stayed for five weeks and worked as an “Artist in Residence” preparing the event. Immediately after, I returned to Barcelona where I benefited immensely next to talented artists from exhibitions in the lovely French art gallery “Dupressoir” in the center of the city. Determined to work as an artist, I felt the necessity to leave Barcelona and turn to Germany, in particular to Kooperative K, collective of eight artists. For three months, I worked there, participated to another festival, collective exhibition and organized a solo exhibition. Then, I travelled to Bologna, Italy, on February 2019, where I engaged to an other Art Residency at Camere d’Aria. The last two years was a go and back to Germany and Italy to participated to different projets as for example a collective wall painting and a comic festival. I’m still in touch to these places and looking forward to other projects, staying always curious at different countries driven by my keen interest in their culture. Currently, since February 2020, I am located in Greece embracing new challenges and getting new inspirations.


Here, is a list of the Press commenting on my work and online exhibitions :

“Nous avons exposé quelques pièces de Lola Lecoutour à la galeria Dupressoir à Barcelone parce que sa démarche artistique se conçoit non seulement comme une création graphique mais aussi narrative.

Son univers est peuplé de personnages aux allures tantôt humaines tantôt volatiles qui sont mis en situation dans des saynètes de la vie quotidiennes, au milieu de la ville, au bord d’un rivage, dans un jardin ou dans une nature luxuriante.

Parvenir à exprimer la légèreté, l’humour et la joie dans le dessin et la peinture avec justesse n’est pas chose aisée. Mais Lola Lecoutour sait puiser ce qu’il y a d’enfant dans son regard pour y saisir cette spontanéité si difficile à capturer avec les années.

Si son trait est simple, il est immédiatement reconnaissable ce qui lui confère une grande liberté créative. Lola est aussi à l’aise avec le crayon, la gouache ou l’aquarelle sur papier que Photoshop ou Illustrator pour imaginer des cadrages et des formats dans des échelles inattendues.

Si la pratique de Lola adopte les codes de l’illustration et de la bande dessinée, elle sait aussi s’en affranchir pour emmener son univers explorer d’autres territoires d’expression.

Dans ces dessins, elle convoque tour à tour Folon, Sempé, Le Douanier Rousseau ou Jacques Rouxel sans pour autant les laisser s’imposer. Son trait n’appartient qu’à elle et pourrait bien l’amener à prolonger plus loin ce qui firent ses illustres ainés.”
