Sylvain Binet: Artist Highlight

Keep reading our artist spotlight to find out who the Parisian artist is and why he should be on your radar.

Who is Sylvain Binet?

Sylvain Binet, is a French artist who was born in the vibrant metropolitan of Étampes, which sits around 40km away from the heart of Paris. His French roots are present in every subsection of his artistic vision, with wit, charm and flair bleeding into his artwork.

Binet was born on 11th August 1971, and from an early age, he was immersed in the world of the arts. His mother was a stylist and created lamé briefs for the French pop star, Claude François.

His father, Christian Binet, is an author, designer and illustrator whose works include the well-known comic, Les Bidochon. The comic is minimalistic in style and focuses around the average everyday married life of a French couple. Sylvain Binet’s influences are far from his father’s vision and incorporate visually striking and complex designs.

Sylvain is one of four children, with three sisters completing the family. The artistic vein of the family runs strong, as one of his sisters is a ceramic artist.

Where did Sylvain Binet study?

Sylvain Binet studied at Ecole Supérieure des Arts Modernes, commonly known as ESAM, in Paris. Whilst at ESAM, Binet studied a range of disciplines before finding his craft, including photography, graphics, illustration, perspective and the nude.

From school, Binet put his studies into practice and became a freelance illustrator for 6 years. He worked with some prestigious names, such as Moto Magazine and a range of other publications that showcased his work as an illustrator.

“In our family, there are no doctors or lawyers, but artists.”

– Sylvain Binet.
