A nude painter, he practices the Japanese technique of calligraphy known as Sumi-e.

Volti said of him: “Alain Bonnefoit, generous and sensitive nature, is among the best in the figurative art of the new generation. Her line drawing, creator of poetry, is not free, it is organized on the surface in soft arabesques of shapes and lights. Painter, her palette rich in colors, is at the service of women in sumptuous bodies . Sculptor in direct carving, he creates in very formed compositions, beautiful volumes which occupy the space.
