Ben Arpéa Biography
B. 1989, Paris, France- Lives and Works in Paris, France
Ben Arpéa is a French-Italian artist who lives and works in Paris. Born into a family of art lovers and collectors, Ben Arpéa has been immersed in a rich artistic universe since childhood, where he began to create, draw and paint.
Ben Arpéa gained recognition in 2020 with a series of paintings in which he developed a singular artistic language made of geometric abstraction evolving towards the semi-figurative, using flat areas of color and texture. He pays homage to the figures of modern and contemporary art that he admires – Tom Wesselmann, David Hockney, Jonas Wood, André Breton – and is fully part of a new generation of creators from art, design and fashion, celebrating color and material in a simple and immediate relationship to the air of time.
