Julien VIGNIKIN, Beninese artist born in Ouidah in 1966, lives and works in Auxerre in Burgundy. He has gone through all the stages of artistic creation: drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations.
Coming from an academic background, he has detached himself from it to give free rein to his overflowing creativity. He draws his inspiration from the sources of Europe and Africa.
His creation seems chaotic, however it is based on a precise, very analytical deciphering of the society that surrounds him.
