Pierre Bonnefille is a French artist, painter, designer and 'Maître d'art' (Art Master) of a singular and poetic approach. Born in 1958 in Saint-Quentin in the North of France, he has lived and worked in Paris since 1985.
Pierre Bonnefille is a chromatic alchemist. He draws inspiration from his journeys and distils the colours he encounters into the infinite richness of his work. The material, colours and light are inseparable in Pierre Bonnefille's work. The artist creates his own materials and textures, made from mineral powder, limestone, lava, marble, earth, from natural pigments and metallic powders.A veritable explorer, Pierre Bonnefille draws his inspiration from the colours of nature and his architectural references in Venice, Pompei and even Kyoto.
Pierre Bonnefille creates his colour palettes starting with the earth and the materials that he collects, and then analyses their colorimetric structures. The intensity, the colour and the movements of the light propose a ceaseless, new interpretation of colours and textures created by Pierre Bonnefille, giving them a unique and particular identity.
Inspired by nature and landscapes, the lively and vibrant surfaces of Pierre Bonnefille's work, an artist of colour and material, fill the room, creating a unique experience that plays on the senses.
