Talk & Exhibition at Fifth Avenue at April 18th

Fifth Avenue invites Pierre Bonnefille to present his new creations stemming from his emblematic series ‘Bronze Paintings’ and ‘Furoshiki Drawings’.  The exhibition will be presented in the art and design space Fifth Avenue, the official and exclusive representative for Maison Liaigre in Moscow at April 18th supported by Elle Decoration  and  Simple.

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. 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 analyzes 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. In tune with the universe of Pierre Bonnefille, Christian Liaigre debuted his collaboration with the artist in the 1990s, for the creation of mural compositions in private interiors and materials destined for his home collection.

Other renowned architects and decorators have called on Pierre Bonnefille for murals and unique home pieces, among them Bruno Moinard, Renzo Piano, Rena Dumas, Michel Boyer, Rémi Tessier, Isabelle Stanislas, David Collins, Andrée Putman, Yves Taralon, Starck, Charles Zana, Fédérica Pallacios and Olivier Gagnère. Pierre Bonnefille’s international reputation affirms itself through major projects in Europe (Paris, London, Switzerland, Italy) Asia and the USA among others.

The talk on April 18 at 6 pm, will be the occasion for Pierre Bonnefille to explain to a professionnal audience the genesis of his personal work and the inspirations that have led him to create the mural compositions for major architectural projects around the world.
