Artists at Work: Benjamin Flouw

My workspace is actually a very tiny room in my house in Marseille. It used to be some kind of closet and I revamped it entirely so it could fit a computer, room to draw, a library and some storage. I wanted it to look like a blank page so there’s almost nothing on the walls and everything is white paint or plain wood. It is also very important that there are plants and books everywhere.

I’m trying to be more and more conscientious and precise in the work I’m doing. I do more preliminary sketches than before, trying to explore new compositions, new poses, going out of my comfort zone.

In 2019 I’d really like to experiment more with collage and paint. Trying to be less dependent on my computer and be able to work with a proper material seems like the way to go to make my work more true and generous.
