From 20th June to 5th July, Laurence Bentz will hold his first private exhibition. Bentz is from Colmar, a town in the Alsace region, which looks like it has come straight out of the pages of a picture book. His unique feel for color and his sense of humor create a fun, cute perspective of the world.
