A representative of the French Expressionism and a member of the French Anti-Abstract Art League. Bernard Buffet was born in Paris and graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He is good at using sharp and angular lines to outline birds, clowns, street scenes and still life. The characters are often thin and slender. Still life and landscapes also have a special sense of decadence and loneliness. He is regarded as a key figure connecting Cubism and Pop Art.
