A Spanish painter, Juan Benito was born in Castille. He made his artistic studies in Madrid and discovered the fascinating world of arenas and toreros. During the 70s, the painter worked in Saint-Tropez and then in Montmartre. It was in this great neighborhood of Parisian artists that his work was discovered by one of the greatest art dealers of that time, Katia Granoff. The latter exhibited the work of Benito in her gallery besides Marc Chagall. His journey has taken him to the four corners of the world: he went to Mexico, the United States, Canada, Costa Rica etc.... then, he returned to France and settled in Camargue, where he currently lives.
Camargue inspires him, like it inspired the famous Spanish painter: Pablo Picasso. With his own artistic approach, he chose the Arlesienne as his favorite subject. In his oil paintings, the Arlesiennes appear discreet and majestic, with gorgeous bright dresses. Other motifs appear in his pieces as well; he depicts guardians, Sevillanas and landscapes of Camargue
With his figurative and delicate compositions, Juan Benito has been able to live from his art all around the world always finding public and clients. Today, he continues to paint and exhibits his work in the South of France.
