FRANÇOIS BONNEL

FRANÇOIS BONNEL

BIO/STATEMENT

François Bonnel is a French artist.

« It is in 2018 that the artist decided to devote himself full-time to his passion for painting and photography and to develop the artistic work he had started twenty-five years earlier, in parallel with his job as a commercial executive in Advertising.

François Bonnel approaches his art in a spontaneous way and explores various fields and creative techniques. He does not seek to convey a message. The curves and the frank and deep colors generate in him a soothing sensation. He paints for pleasure above all … as some people practice a sport, music or … gastronomy. He likes the taste of simple things and seeks above all to do himself good. And if it pleases others, it’s better like that!

His white acrylic paint surfaces are confronted with other bright colors letting imagine the elements represented and their share of shadow. They contrast with the pastel (dry or greasy) and with the greasy chalk lines that cut a path often inspired by the music he listens to while working. »
