French artist, Benjamin Plé, is a master of many mediums. Working with oil, watercolor, ink, and sculpture, Plé has crafted a sophisticated and unified body of work. Plé graduated from the renowned art school “Met de Penninghen” in 2002, after which he spent 5 years honing his craft and finding inspiration for his works. Today, that dedication shows. His work maintains a level of playful abstraction, inspired by architectural spaces and object design.
His stunning bas reliefs are sculptural pieces that are an optical illusion of sorts. The earlier works in this series are pattern-like, holding a sense of symmetry across the form. But as you advance through the pieces Benjamin begins to explore how a single shape can command the canvas. Plé is a master of creating a stunning visual journey through his Bas Relief project. As far as architecturally inspired artwork goes, you simply can’t get much more inspiring than this.
