“Whether it is with her scissors creations, her Piggy Bank Frenzy or her thematic paintings, pure art arises from the creator’s joy and spontaneity.”
Born in Metz (North East of France), Véronique Pinault has been showing a strong interest for art, design and painting for a long time. Paying attention to a world in constant change and drawing inspiration from her trips, her readings and her qualms, her life vibrates to the rhythm of her brushes resulting in creations full of energy, joy, depth and colors. As a self-taught woman, she began her creative process in Toulouse. She decided to consider her own art object in the aftermath of her participation to the 2012 Toulouse Cow Parade. She opted for scissors in order to lend prestige to this object long forgotten in the art world. She designed and created her original mold. This resulted in eight different and unique models. Driven by this enthusiasm over unique objects production based on molds, she then proceeded with the Piggy Banks Frenzy, délire de tirelire. Fifty original models (outsider art, cubic or exotic styles) have been created so far. Through paintings close to outsider art, endearing characters of multiple and extravagant shapes become the messengers of her short tales.

Why has a humble tool from everyday life inspired my imagination with so much enthusiasm… Nobody has thought about it before. Therefore I lent prestige to scissors. My unique creation in the world offered a range of 8 different designs.
My strokes, dots, circles, bright and shimmering colours are the very expression of my art. Through my paintings you can encounter some shapes directly diverted from my scissors, my firm favourites, or pieces of posters that I brought back from my several trips. Once stuck, these posters blend into the paintings and also create a vivid atmosphere.
I have found its small shape very pleasant and I really enjoyed crafting it. Each piggy bank is unique and different.
