François Bonnel is a French artist. In 2018, the artist decided to devote himself full-time to his passion for painting and photography and to develop the artistic work he had begun twenty-five years earlier, in parallel with his career as commercial manager in Advertising. François Bonnel approaches his art spontaneously and explores various fields and techniques of creation. He exploits the digital media, the techniques of photography and collage by freeing himself from known references to give free rein to his creation. Alone in front of the canvas, the artist defines the limits without necessarily trying to convey a message. His flat areas of white acrylic paint are confronted with others bright colors leaving imagine the elements represented and their share of shadow. They cut with pastel (dry or greasy) and with bold chalk lines that poke a path often inspired by the music he listens to while working.
