Todd Bienvenu (b. 1980 Little Rock, AR) received his BFA from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 2003 and his MFA from New York Studio School in New York, NY in 2007. Recent solo shows include Endless Bummer at Harper’s Books in East Hampton, NY and Water Sports at yours mine & ours in New York, NY–both in 2017–and a solo show Dive at Galerie Sébastien Bertrand in Geneva in 2016. Humorous and unapologetic, Bienvenu’s recent paintings illustrate the varied experiences of reality, whether celebratory or mundane. Using broad brushstrokes and heightened color he paints playful scenes of late night debauchery and summery beachscapes, as well as solitary portraits and intimate depictions of interior spaces. Bienvenu lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
