Born in Switzerland in 1993, raised in a family of 5 generations in graphic arts, Naomi Cachot-Gallay draws and creates since that day she was able to hold a pen in her (left) hand. 

 

In 2011, she was admitted in ECAL (University of Art and Design) to study graphic design. After 3 years studying, she joined a graphic design studio in California. She developed her artistic and critical eye on branding but also on her art. 

 

Back to Switzerland, in 2015, she received the Jean Knechtli Award, which honors artists under 30 years. One year later, she graduated and obtained an article in the renowned Etapes magazine, the Parisian review of graphic design and visual culture.

Since then, next to her graphic design projects, she got several opportunities to show her work around Switzerland and United States, to collaborate with streetwear brands and to develop her practice to new mediums, especially painting.

 

Her work already got several brands' attention 
including Louis Vuitton.
