Pierre Bonnefille is a French artist, painter, designer and “Maître d’Art” (Art Master) with a unique and poetic approach. Born in 1958 in Saint-Quentin in the North of France, he has lived and worked in Paris since 1985.
Material, colors and light are inseparable in Pierre Bonnefille’s work. The artist creates his own materials and textures, made from mineral powder, limestone, lava, marble, earth, from natural pigments and metallic powders. Pierre Bonnefille is a veritable explorer, drawing his inspiration from the colors of nature with architectural references from Venice, Pompei and Kyoto. To make his color palettes Pierre Bonnefille starts with the earth and the materials that he collects, and then goes on to analyze their colorimetric structures. The intensity, color and movements of light propose a ceaseless, new interpretation of color and texture created by Pierre Bonnefille, giving them a unique and particular identity. The inimitable savoir-faire in Pierre Bonnefille’s wall compositions and home pieces have, for 30 years, taken the form of creations around the globe, from private projects, to institutions, to luxury brands (such as Cartier, Hermès and Loro Piana, among others). Pierre Bonnefille’s international reputation affirms itself through major projects in Europe (Paris, London, Switzerland, Italy), Asia and the USA, among others.
