Pierre Bessuges’ origins lie in the South of France. He has spent half of his life abroad and worked over 30 years in development aid, international cooperation, and humanitarian action. While he is now independently pursuing his humanitarian engagements, he has become an emerging self-made artist. His work can be abstract or lightly figurative at times, graphic and colorful. He uses different raw materials and supports such as metal, canvas, wood, and clay and transforms, alters, or re-uses them, to create bespoke pieces of art in the form of paintings, objects, furniture, and sculptures.
