Benjnamin Carbonne is an expressionist artist born in 1970. Self-taught and then 20 years old, his father gave him his first palette of painter offering him an alternative to his need for expression. Very quickly Benjamin gives birth to tormented faces in black and white. He wants to go further and negotiates with the anatomy museum of Montpellier learning anatomy in exchange for drawings made for course materials. This technical knowledge will allow him to free himself from the technique to give free rein to the emotion.

Special crteations have changed this emerging artist :
In 2007, the creation of a 50-meter-long mural at the Rivesaltes camp will give new meaning to his approach and will make Benjamin discover his "place" as an artist in a story.
In 2009 it is the order of a Pieta that will cause in Benjamin a different work on the body.

Since Benjamin continues to surprise us with a more recent work on the movement interpreting the man in his permanent search and more recently a reflection on the situation of women in our society.

He will also carry out research partnerships with the medical profession following his work in Bordeaux on obesity.

The gallery's words

I met for the first time Benjamin Carbonne in 2012. The discovery of his work was violent. Attraction, mystery, violence, denunciation, softness ... complementary and contradictory emotions, it was a real revelation : I had to work with him,  it could not be otherwise! The first meeting was as complex as his work, Benjamin, a complete, honest artist, wanted to be certain that I will not distort his words and that I will feel what he has in his creations. For a first collaboration, the artist invited me to come and paint the large scales at the gallery and spend several days together, which would allow us to get to know each other better. Benjamin worked in the 3rd room, I had the chance to experience a performance that gave me "goose bumps". Without more word, the message was over. Since 2012 it is a collaboration, a mutual trust that has been built. We both take care to never distort the remarks, to remain faithful to who we are. Since 2012 we have exposed all the work of Benjamin and continue with pleasure to make you discover his progress.
