Philippe Brito marries chocolate and Art with David David and Gregory Berben to offer a collection of unique, artistic and delicious Easter eggs in 2016.
Philippe Brito associates with artists David David and Gregory Berben to create a collection of beautiful and appetizing, artistic and gourmands Easter eggs. The three worlds of Cannes artists combine in unusual shapes, eye-catching colors to offer splendid works of art to be crunched by children (young and old) at Easter.
Taming the “medium” chocolate
To achieve a artistic and gourmand result, David David and Gregory Berben went through a learning step. Appropriating a new media like chocolate, not easily mastered, was favored by the advice and expertise of chef Philippe Brito. Gregory Berben had worked with the house Philippe Brito to create an exclusive line parallel to the “Super Hero” line at Easter.
His creations were successfully acclaimed and in 2016, the collection welcomes a new artist: David David.
Passionate about chocolate
Philippe Brito, passionate about chocolate, enjoys sharing his love of the profession, experience and singularity of pastry artist. Before opening his Pâtisserie Chocolaterie in Cannes in March 2011, Philippe took his first steps at the house Olcina in Cannes and honed his talent at prestigious institutions like former Noga Hilton in Cannes, Alain Ducasse’s Bar & Boeuf and the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel in Monaco.
His cakes and sweets are a reflection of his career and his personality: traditional in taste and original in their forms and design.
Renewing his carte with the seasons to give the best to his customers, Philippe Brito is committed to focus on flavors and originality in his creations. The pastry chef has already distinguished himself from others with cubic-looking chocolates which earned him the nickname “the pastry with square chocolates.”
David David: art is omnipresent
David David, born in 1981, is a sculptor and painter from Nancy. Coming from the Street Culture, David David is experimenting all playgrounds, from the street to his studio. The artist has gained notoriety for his sculptures “Head in Art”, which depict blinded characters topped with a paint bucket. Through the gestures of his works, he attests that art is omnipresent in everyday life. Living and working in Cannes, he gets inspiration from his observation of the world by escaping sometimes on canvas and sometimes on the walls.
Gregory Berben’s life energy
Born in Cannes in 1974, Gregory Berben is a visual artist, painter & sculptor, an autodidact with an unusual path. Professional in sports for a dozen years, he juggled his two careers. As the exhibitions were folowing each others, he tucked his sneakers to devote himself to art in early summer 2009.
His paintings, collages, original creations based on recycling and his sculptures full of color and intensity, travel the world: Hong Kong, New York, Miami, Monaco, Paris… His works are an ode to the life energy. Since July 2015, the artist has transferred his studio in the residence of artists “Suquet des Arts” in the old town of Le Suquet, in collaboration with the City of Cannes.
