Vaughn Bénéteau

Born in 1968 in the small French hamlet of River Canard in Ontario, Canada, Bénéteau found his predisposition as a Graphic Designer, instructing himself in all manners artistic. His 35 years of experience have led him to experiment with a multitude of different media: Oil, Bic pen, acrylic, charcoal, Posca. These, he writes, help him to achieve his aim of creating: "Empty portrait glances; scrawny bodies that do not have the blacktraits which emerge. Sometimes splashes of bright colour appear in the mass of heads, hands, hooked arms disproportionate.. as to mean that these beings are alive!" Vaughn is continuously working towards exhibitions worldwide.
