Born in 1985, Katty is a multimedia artist and designer living in Mauritius. She graduated with a BA (HONS) in 2011 after 4 years of studies in Digital Art at the MGI School of Fine Arts (University of Mauritius) where she did her specialization in Multimedia. Katty thoroughly enjoyed the challenges all these years presented and she had the opportunity to participate in various workshops, meet and work with great artists.

Colours, storyboarding, drawing and painting, photography, web design, stop motion animation, video editing, sound manipulations and concept creation are things she really enjoys and that she is fascinated about. Art is everything to her simply because she thinks that without it, we just live in a plain, empty world. She definitely believes that everybody should have and share a colorful life !

“Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go”, a quote of Natalie Goldberg that has always motivated her. Katty loves art since she was a child and this passion is still growing. She spends all her spare time creating arty videos, painting and photographing life around her. Her precious little Canon EOS is never far !

Today Katty is a Multimedia Artist and the Creative Director at Sugarsplashes Ltd (http://www.sugarsplashes.com/), a multimedia company based in Mauritius.

In 2013

Individual co-prod and “Responsable de Figuration” for the Mauritian Movie Lonbraz Kann of David Constantin.

Lonbraz Kann synopsis:

Mauritius Island at Nouvelle-Découverte

Cane is not profitable anymore. It is the last time the fields will be cut. Luxury residential houses are built where cane sugar fields used to grow.

Marco, Bissoon, Rosario and their friends, spent their lives working on sugar cane fields of Nouvelle-Découverte. When the sugar factory closed down, the world they lived in changed overnight. They would hang out in Ah-Yan’s shop, dreaming of a fresh start, a new life or just migrating somewhere. When Devi, a mysterious young woman, settles in the big house facing the old labourers’ camp, she becomes the talk of the village.

The story of their everyday life unfolds itself, revealing shared bonds of human resilience stronger than ever. Lonbraz Kann is a narrative about modern times and ourselves, about a society caught in the web of time with the global intruding in the individual life. Set on an Indian Ocean island trailing its cliché of paradise, Lonbraz Kann shows the other side of the obstinate postcard of happy tropical people.

Lonbraz Kann in English : “Shady Sugar Canes”
