Belgische kunstenaar Beniti Cornelis

Cornelis Beniti

Beniti Cornelis was a Belgian artist who was born in Mechelen in 1946 and who died in Bonheiden in 2017. He was a painter, graphic artist and designer of collages. He studied at the Academy and at the RIKA in Mechelen, at the Academy in Hasselt. Exhibits his work from 1970. Debuted with abstracted port installations. In 1980 he came to strong subjective, spontaneous work; he painted in an intuitive way, with unexpected shapes, spots, lines and signs, and worked with a limited range of colors. In recent years, he started to use more colors and let the backgrounds flow together. His works appear lyrical, mystical, static and sometimes enigmatic. From the press: "He is looking for traces, for prints that may have been washed out, for something that seems to have been lost and is recalled after inciting rituals."
