Due to health measures and lockdown implementation by the government, SOUKHOS exhibition by Raphaël Barontini scheduled from March 27 to April 30, 2021 has been postponed to a later date.
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.
