Benjamin Deguenon is a plastic artist and expresses himself through installations, drawing, and sculpture. Originally from Mono in Benin, he was born in the old capital Abomey in 1982. Today, he lives in Cotonou.
A self-taught artist
Ever since his childhood years, Deguenon has been drawing and honing his craft, following his predecessor Dominique Zinkpé, also a self-taught artist from Benin. His work, which focuses on the complexities that exist between tradition and a consumerist society, has been enriched through his contact with other artists, whom he met by living in different parts of the world.
