(Chinese and French
Since 2002, they started to work together)
Benoit+Bo was born in 2002 in Tianjin, China.
The year they started to work together, the birth of their group. Benoit is French and Bo is Chinese.
Their coming together is the fruit of the blending of two cultures, two sensitivities and two different pasts. They are known in China under the name Dong Bo & Xi Bo. Their pieces are the meeting point of French and Chinese culture. They combine their knowledge and world view to create a new vision of the world, more hybrid, more contemporary which mixes their two origins, Asia and Europe, China and France.
They began exhibiting their works in Paris where they lived until 2007. Then they decided to set up their studio in Shanghai where they have been for more than seven years.
They use different mediums in their artistic works :Painting, digital art work, photography, video, object, Installation…They have previously exhibited work in France, Belgium, Italy, Korea, China.
