Arthur Hent

Arthur Hent

Born: 1973

Hometown: Rennes

Based in: Nantes

Arthur Hent is a French artist based in Nantes and Paris. He has a literary training, but has always drawn. The first drawing he remembers dates back to his early childhood: a black dog appeared in the superposition of straight lines. While pursuing his artistic career, he also develops his career as a copywriter for major Parisian advertising agencies, awarded with numerous international awards.

His work is inspired by literature, geometry and screenwriting: he writes stories with lines.

The idea for the line came to him in a vision when he was 23 years old. He saw two lines move, meet, then separate, and instantly associated their lines with the trajectory of two people. A few years later, returning from a journey in New Caledonia where he discovered Lapita pottery, he decided to create his language, to write with lines rather than words as to establish correspondences between the line and the events he wanted to describe. And, in order to symbolize everyone’s social and cultural environment, he also introduced the circle (death / birth) and the rectangle.

His latest series: Linea Mundi, is the most universal. She is inspired by Pierre Soulages and cubism for the composition. Blocks of lines, like so many groups of people and different realities that coexist. An inventory of the complex world in which we live with digital technologies.
