Emerging first from Bienvenu’s dense figurative paintings are the power and energy of his strong colors and their spontaneous movement. His paintings are resplendent, expressive and uninhibited. He depicts sex, tattooed rockers, beaches, alcohol, urban scenes and parties—Bienvenu’s autobiographical universe. He says that his subjects are the ones he knows (that he is living, has lived, has pulled from the web), what he finds interesting in daily life—whatever passes through his head. “Humor is honesty. The real struggle for me is to get butt naked in the paintings, to be completely vulnerable. Whatever it is that is on my mind, whatever my concerns are, I don’t want to hide from.”
