Alain Bonnec, born in 1952 and his younger brother, Daniel, born in 1962, have been creating art together for over twenty years. Recognized for their charming images, the Bonnec brothers display their works throughout Europe, Japan and the United States.
These enchanting pieces reveal a "French" sensibility. Imaginary creatures, poignant bon voyages, fanciful musical and garden themes fill these whimsical scenes with lightness and a joy of living. Flowers overflowing in the parks, clowns propped on crescent moons and pianists playing conch shells are examples of the fanciful scenes the Bonnec's create.
In France, the Bonnec Brothers art is on permanent display in Paris at the Musee de la Monnaie de Paris, in addition to other modern art museums, and the museum of art at Rennes. The Bonnecs have also been commissioned to create works for large Japanese corporations like Sony Music, Sumitomo and department stores like Sogo and Mitsukoshi.
In addition, the Bonnec brothers have contributed their talents to such philanthropic organizations as the North American and European branches of UNICEF and Natural Conservancy, an organization that helps preserve our environment.
