“Maxwell sees things his own way. He is pure, innocent, sensitive and he has his own style. Right from the beginning, we could recognize his touch. To me, he’s a true artist.”
– Charles Bitton

How it all started

In october 2014, was his first solo exhibit « Son monde / his world » which some of the profits were donated to the Giant Steps School foundation.

Fragility & Poetry

As a sensitive soul, he invites us to share his vision of the world and to open to his universe. 
The discovery of the unknown shapes and colors is at the origin of his art.

With either the use of a brush or his fingers, different techniques create a pictorial records,
which sways between fragility and poetry.
Maxwell Bitton paints with the purity and innocence of a child that’s not seeking to please,
but with the technique and style of a professional artist.
With painting, Maxwell found his voice.
