Yolande Milan Batteau of  Callidus Guild  – Friday, December 11th @ 3pm EST

Callidus Guild is the vision of principal artist Yolande Milan Batteau, a trained and exhibited fine artist who brings decades of aesthetic and decorative skills to the studio. Batteau has honed her knowledge and physical mastery of hundreds of ancient materials and methods over the last 25 years, drawing inspiration from natural phenomena and artistic anthropologies alike. Batteau’s surfaces involve pushing marble dust, encaustic, resin, leaf, and micaceous powders beyond their historical limits. Callidus Guild conceives, designs, and installs surfaces and wallpapers for some of the world’s most illustrious clients, including Chanel, Tiffany & Co, and Graff Diamonds.
