Ben Arpéa and abstraction


    Ben Arpea is a Franco-Italian artist born in Paris in 1989. Coming from a family of art collector and dealer, Ben Arpea grew up in a rich artistic universe and it was therefore natural that he became passionate about art. 

Self-taught, he was initially introduced to design by creating lamps and handicrafts made from basic materials such as concrete before turning to drawing and painting.

His abstract paintings composed of colorful geometric shapes are inspired by modern painters, such as Miro, whom he particularly admires. Ben Arpea has the particularity of painting on canvas of jute and linen without frame accentuating the raw side of his style. Through the assembly of geometric shapes, his works are warm and spontaneous.
