Wassily Kandinsky once started,"The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with bass notes or a dark lake with treble.
"The work of Algeria born, California based artist Bernard E. Beneito is a testament of this ideology.
The joy and excitement that is palpable in the paintings of Mr Beneito is a pure incarnation of this kind of beauty and joy for music.His paintings overflow with narrative activity inspired by his native North Africa.
Interweaving dazzling reds with glowing oranges and compelling yellows, these stories burst off the canvas.
His exuberant paintings are playfully characterized by effervescent imagery, cool simplicity and wonderfully earnest emotions.
The artist does not analyze his subjects, but rather intentionally allows his canvases to mirror the essence of the individuals as he simultaneously richly injects his composition with personal energy.
