Marie Payan


Marie Payan is a French visual artist, print-maker and designer based in Oslo. She graduated with a visual communication degree from ECV Paris in 2015 and has since then been developing her own creative practice as well as collaborating on multidisciplinary projects together with cultural institutions, artists, activist communities, startups, architects, community spaces – and more.

In 2020, she founded oonda space – a creative hub for print-making enthusiasts located in the heart of Oslo. oonda serves as a physical space for experimentation (with a focus on riso printing), embrace imperfections, tactile learning and share the process through community building by providing accessible facilities, events and workshops related to print-making and independent publishing. 

Marie is also the co-founder of JAM Collective, a multi-disciplinary non-profit artistic practice experimenting across the fields of Art & activism, architecture & public spaces, design and participatory processes. Together with other institutions, we facilitate creative events and workshops to support different means of expression.
