Benoît Feron – about the artist

Benoît Feron is born in 1962. In the recent years he has intensively travelled throughout Africa to catch the beauties and soul of primitive tribes, whose authenticity fascinates him. Driven by an artistic approach and by the intense emotion that these tribes procure him, his eye catches the magnificence and sensuality of these people, mostly through close-ups on human skin, traditional body paintings, scarifications, jewels, clothes or glances and portraits. Very graphic, often abstract and always very sharp, his images give a new and original dimension to this form of ancestral art which goes back to our origins.
