ROBERT COMBAS brought a new form of figurative painting at the dawn of the 1980s. Present on the art scene since 1979, he is the creator of a movement that Ben called "LA FIGURATION LIBRE," which brought together artists such as Rémi Blanchard, François Boisrond, Robert Combas, and Hervé Di Rosa.

"La Figuration Libre" in the 1980s challenged the sacredness of art and asserted for painting what the punk movement claimed for music: anyone can be an artist. Street art against the establishment. Continuing this provocative attitude in his personal work, Combas confronts all artistic challenges: painting, sculpture, music, and cinema are part of his work, allowing him to develop his imagination across various mediums.

His life is painting, and his painting is life. Robert Combas captures the world, chews it up, and spits it out in fragments. In his parallel universe, we kill but do not die, love and sex intertwine with war and violence.

Robert Combas exorcises the dramas of history by interpreting them with his poetic and humorous writing. He decodes the world, embellishing or darkening it as he pleases, taking us on an incredible journey filled with colors and music.
