Sébastien Bonin


Biography

Born in 1977 in Brussels (Belgium). Lives and works in Brussels (Belgium).

Sébastien Bonin uses pictorial and photographic medium. After graduating in screen printing at ENSAV La Cambre, he toured the studios to lear photographic technique. He, therefore, decides to focus on experimentation by developing a photographic language that leaves a large part to the darkroom. The light and exhibition methods are all pretext for questioning the medium.


After an exhibition at Wiels in 2015, painting becomes a natural parent in his practice. For Sébastien Bonin, painting is a ‘cosa mentale', between abstraction and figuration that testifies to the world in which he lives. Sébastien Bonin makes society one of his working tools by taking interest in what disturbs our daily lives through fragments of information, most of the time thanks to the documents that surround him, whether written or sound.

The artist created an exhibition platform called Island in 2012. Sébastien Bonin's work has been exhibited at Wiels (Brussels), BOZAR (Brussels), Botanique (Brussels, Karl Marx Studio (Paris) and Ixelles Museum (Brussels).
