Benjamin Affagard aka Come

Biography
Translation in progress

Immersed early on in the artistic world, he began practicing the art of graffiti in 2000. Interested in Art History, he decided to pursue this path through an French "Artisanat et métiers d'art" diploma. These studies allowed him to develop a new sensibility that led him to experiment with different mediums and materials (wood, earth, moldings, sculpture, models, graphic design…) Following this, he worked for nine years as an Art Frame-Maker, through which he acquired several different techniques in do-it-yourself fabrication of all types of unusual objects, to satisfy his clientele. 

In 2011/2012, he developed the concept of a model entitled "Street Vitrine". This project aimed at creating dioramas of urban environment, integrating the original work of an artist from the graffiti scene. These "Street Vitrine" are inspired from the universe and work of several different graffiti artists. The artists received miniature store shutters made of cardboard, on which they each painted a unique piece of art. For every shutter, Come performed a real work of observation and photo shooting, to recreate the urban setting. 

Cardboard, wood, grey cardboard, plywood, plastic, acrylic paint, potato bags and plastic straws: he recovered all kinds of materials that could be useful to him, with which he was able to create models that are both stylized and close to reality.
