Sculptors Artists

French artists

Thierry Benenati is a French artist and sculptor born in Marseille in 1963. At the end on his art studies, he moved to Paris and started a brilliant career as an artistic director in the advertisement industry. After 20 years creating for agencies, brands, companies, he got back to the basics of arts. And because he never stopped drawing, painting using sculpture as a new expression was not the latest craze but a deep need to emerge as a complete artist.

Supported by personalities such as M.Gérard Depardieu, Mme Françoise Fabian, or the french artist Ben, his work will be honoured by rewards and acknowledged by the French artfairs (Salon d'Automne Paris, Art en Capital Grand Palais Paris…) and famous salons of contemporary art.

From his bestiary to human representations, Thierry Benenati tries to reveal the invisible, the hidden part of what he sees through symbols and metaphors. Before melting in bronze, originals are made in plaster, iron and wax.

Thierry Benenati works the steel, layer by layer at 3500 deg. Creating an original piece in steel is by far the most demanding and enduring work. Every touch is rough, sharp, heavy and extremely tough. Like a blacksmith working weapons, the artist struggles to release from the matter an animal or a face, carving every lines, volumes and angles, making forget the rudeness of the creation.

"Fortunately, contemporary art production is full of diversity and more fecund than ever...

Yet a separation remains between classics and moderns. Regardless of their knowledge and creativity, moderns tend to consider classics too old fashioned, when these latters, sometimes too conservative, reply by highlighting their lack of craftmanship and technics. I try to navigate against the tide, trying to create balance between these two conceptions." (Thierry Benenati)

Since 2015 he his president of sculpture section of Salon d'Automne Paris.
