Antoine Carbonne was born in Paris in 1987. After spending his childhood in Senegal and then in Scotland, he continued his studies in the Paris suburbs. He then went on to Hunter College in NY and the Beaux art in Paris where he got a degree in 2011. During this period, he regularly visited Philippe Cognee’s atelier and Werner Bouwens printing and edition atelier. He worked as a supervisor in Beaubourg with modern collections. There, he discovered Picabia and his eclectism. He also was a stretcher bearer in Saint Antoine hospital for the summer and his first paintings portray the daily life there. During an exchange in NY, he was captivated by the sculptor Tony Smith’s interpretation of minimalist and he studied difference between experiencing the esthtics in the space in an exhibition and the esthetic of a space in every day life. Carbonne was inspired and he started representing day scenes using painted collage technics that he learnt from David Salle. He kept the creative process, a chemistry, making each assemblage painting an experience and his atelier a lab. He now lives in Brussels and Paris since 2015.
