SOUKHOS exhibition by Raphaël Barontini, previously scheduled in April, will finally open from July 7th to 28th of 2021.

 

Raphaël Barontini is a 36 years old plastic artist graduated from the Beaux-Arts of Paris and from the Hunter College of Art of New York. His work of « creolisation of pictures » has been exposed by numerous museums and galeries throughout the world, especially through remarkable performances in the USA, in Savannah, Fort Worth, or very recently in Chicago.

 

In his protean work, the plasticien constantly questions art-craft relationships, west-east, dreamlike-political. In 2020, he is selected by LVMH Métiers d’Art for an artistic residency at the heart of the Heng Long tannery, in Singapour, renowned for its exceptional expertise in tanning and finishing of crocodilian leather.

 

All the works produced as well as several representative pieces of the artist's work will be presented at the Studio des Acacias, in partnership with Mariane Ibrahim Gallery.
