Abdelkader Benchamma: contemporary drawing

Abdelkader Benchamma

In recent years, the work of young French artist Abdelkader Benchamma has evolved from whimsical figurative drawing to far more epic, semi-abstract composition evocative of stylised landscapes.

Drawn in ink, Benchamma's paper-based works and murals consist of fluid, yet highly controlled marks that jostle within the boundaries of specific form or appear to explode outwards into space.

Wresting a formidable range of expression from his medium, Benchamma's delicate yet powerful drawing style has numerous precedents, but is nonetheless very recognisably his own.
