Benoît Gilles Michel (Guadeloupe, 1997) is a french artist who lives and works in Baillif, Guadeloupe. He studied applied arts in Basse-Terre, and design at École nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d’art in Paris. He lived in Amsterdam for few years before moving back to Guadeloupe where he currently has a studio practice.

Initially working in industrial design, he moved slowly to the fine arts. Benoît Gilles uses different tools and mediums as way of expression. A language that takes a plurality of forms like: sculptures, drawings, paintings, sounds and films. His work relates to his ecosystem, questioning his interaction with the living, the visible and invisible world, assembling symbols and images to create his own narratives.
