Artist Biography
Camille Bombois (1883 - 1970) was active/lived in France. He is known for Naive painting, circus and fairground scenes.
Camille Bombois was born in Vernarey-les-Laumes, Cotes d'Or in France in 1883. He was educated at Laroche from 1889 until 1899, and self-educated in painting after 1899. He served in the French Army from 1914 to 1918 on active duty in Chemen-Creux and Chenemdes-Dames and he was decorated for bravery three times.
Bombois worked as a circus strong man, a night watchman, a builder and a newspaper typesetter in Paris until 1924. Then he painted full time from 1925 until 1970. He died in Paris in June 1970. Bombois is outstanding among naive artists for the strength and vigor of his work, which was certainly a reflection of his own character. It was this quality of vitality which assured him a position of pre-eminence among the French "primitives". An ingredient of folk-art merges into the artless candour of popular illustration. His favorite themes were taken from the circus and the fairground with a decorative quality that lend a special charm.
