Benjamin Carbonne was born in 1970 in France. Self-taught, he invested in 20 years this art, “says” what bothers him, the key to sometimes expresse violence, or that another world and eventually give way to something else in him. The artist paints often tormented beings, this period of his work will focus on the sometimes sweet and sensitive, but also very often torn, torn or distorted with pain faces, the cry, the need for expression. In 2009, this is the command of a “pieta” that will cause a different body work.
After hitting with intensity expression of what could be more lively, more skinned him like humanity, Benjamin naturally takes this new way to work on the other bodies or faces, revealing all their power in contrast depth and lightness, precision and pictorial space to the imagination.
