Frederic Bouffandeau


Frédéric Bouffandeau (b. 1966, France) is a mid-career multi-medium artist that finds inspiration in botanicals. Developing his own visual language, his compositions explore abstracted floral forms, geometry and palettes of colors. Bouffandeau’s choice of medium is vested in the possibilities offered by the unique properties of paper, canvas, neon and aluminum and their ability to realize the fundamental message in his work: understanding the core and intricacies of color. His neon works are unhindered by space, exhibiting on walls, floors and ceilings.


A graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts, Bouffandeau exhibits across France and internationally. His work is held in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (Paris), Musée National des Arts Décoratif (Paris), and the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Angers). The artist lives and works in Angers, France.
