Ciele Beau

Ciele Beau is an artist and illustrator, based out of Vancouver BC, who derives influence from her experience with Synesthesia (condition where brain mixes up the senses and stimulation of one sensory pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory pathway). Although she has a strong focus on Synesthesia, she also has an equally acquired taste for human-connection and relationships being displayed in her artwork.

 

Most recently, Ciele created a series/style of painting called ‘Colour Frequencies’ that is solely based on her interpretation of well-known music through synesthesia. The result is a beautifully and aesthetically sound 5’x 3’ grid of colour, 100% playable as sheet music.

 

Ciele graduated with a BFA from the University of Victoria in 2013, and is currently studying graphic design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Branching away from her fine art, Ciele is a full time business owner (Honey & Heart Co.) as well as musician and songwriter, and teacher; delving deep into all avenues of creativity.
