Benoit Pare: “Comix Mania!” (Expired)

Image Gallery

Happiness, carefree and unrestrained. Familiar and funny figures that take us back to our childhood. Tin Tin, Betty Boop, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Tarzan, Scrooge, Minnie Mouse, the Three Little Pigs.

Taking as his motif comics and cartoon characters, which he regards as worthy of consideration as art, Benoit Pare, in his third exhibition at “Kapopoulos Fine Arts”, invites us on an enchanted escape. His images provide a much-needed antidote to today’s challenges. An explosion of pure colour.

In a mood of scholarly “disorder”, the artist often unites incongruous subjects on the same canvas, placing them in an imaginative setting and creating romantic stories that bring to mind both our childhood and our true self.

The painter will host a children's painting workshop at the gallery on Saturday, March 9, and Saturday, March 16, from 12:00-14:00.

Official opening: Saturday, March 2, at 13:00
