Is it my
fault... Am I the only one? ...who immediately hears in 'Artabo'
the whisper of the Latin 'Amabo', I will love, mingled with 'art',
creating art, performing art, experiencing art... Hearing this
so aptly chosen name, my imagination bubbles with the echoes of
a motto, a promise, and an oath. Once upon a time, we would have
said, Nom de guerre. Martial artist Lætitia d'Etiolles is
not a warrior with mask but painter with words, her shield as
vulnerable as a signature.
