We manage their promotion in its entirety with a 360-degree development strategy – artistic methodology, managing communication and image, sales strategy, client relations and tax optimisation, supervision of exhibitions and projects, submissions and administration.
The artist, painter of life's thousand and one colours, is the very picture of modesty, despite his 60-year artistic career, 138 personal exhibitions in France and abroad and works displayed in more than 25 countries. A former student at the Beaux-Arts (French National School of Fine Arts) where he obtained his degree as an art teacher followed by a Fine Arts Professorship, Bernard Cadène can afford to indulge in exaggerated colours, combinations of hues, irreverent and academically inappropriate – this is his true signature, one that he reinvents with each brush stroke. The great painter from Toulouse is constantly searching for liberation – freedom of spirit is his oxygen

A sculptor through and through, clay flows through her veins.
Eva Czaplicki sculpts as she breathes. The work emerges under her fingers as if miraculously, the creation seems to escape directly from her consciousness. Even so, her artistic, sensory quest is endless,creating the emotional trouble she feels at conception, bringing forth life, touching the sensory. The body held in tension is at the centre of her art. She looks to find the spirit through the body. In 2020, at the GRAND PALAIS, Eva received a Commendation from the Jury for her bronze sculpture "Origine" ("Origin") at the 230th French Artists' Salon, the oldest and most prestigious artistic salon.
"My artistic quest is to create emotion which will awaken the child buried in all of us". KiKo's world is a palette of all those childhood memories. Along with the teddy bear or Charlie Chaplin, the “Mômes de KiKo” ("KiKo's Kids") play on his canvas. By turns mischievous, carefree, sulky, melancholy or sad, these little travellers carry the joys, wounds and secrets of life in their bundles as they journey through childhood. KiKo is definitely the most expressionist of the Pop/Street French artists. He works on the drawing in charcoal, then in Indian ink on smooth, glossy backgrounds, vivid and powerful. His technique consolidates an artistic DNA which is immediately recognisable.
A sculptor in metal, a plastic artist in reflective materials, his works, with their intense and powerful colours, are a "play of reflections", questioning the spectator on the complexity of being human, on their capacity to be open with the world and with others, and their own attitude to living out freedom. The frenzied sculptor, who has had solo exhibitions in numerous Contemporary Art Centres and Art Salons, will join the artists selected by the International Curatorial Board of the 13th FLORENCE BIENNALE in 2021, exhibiting there and competing for the "Lorenzo il Magnifico International Award"».
Laure Hatchuel-Becker aka LHB plays beautifully by partially decomposing the reality that she reconstructs through light. The irresistible force of her painting is to play with colors and light in order for her to exceed the realism of details and to return to realism in general." Alain Renner, former Vice-Chairman of Sotheby's FranceInspired by the Indigenous Australian artthat shereinterprets in 3Doil, LHB inventsthis unique technique of "peaks". Each square meter of canvas is covered with around 30,000 peaks, all made by hand. LHB is exhibited at the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and is one of the artists selected for the Dubai World Expo / UAE 2021.

The sulky with flowers, 2021- KiKo
The art market has opened up, the codes have changed and it is no longer necessary to be an experienced connoisseur to take the plunge and start a collection of works of art.
We will guide you in choosing works, establishing contacts with artists and galleries with whom we have the closest relationships, to obtain the best conditions for you, and guarantee a purchase that will complement your collection. It is preferable to purchase an important work from a middle-range or emerging artist rather than a middle-range work from a great artist.

You are a company (EURL, SARL SCI, Selarl, SAS, etc.) or a liberal profession (SEL, EI, etc.) and you wish to acquire a work of art:
You are an artist and you wish to offer staged payments while collecting the payment for your work of art in one go:
Starting your own collection, exhibiting your works in your workplace and reducing your tax : an art in itself !
= > LEASING WITH THE OPTION TO PURCHASE
Leasing or rental with an option to purchase is currently THE most advantageous solution.
Leasing allows businesses to deduct 100% of payments made against taxable earnings.
Residual sale value may ultimately be generated by selling to a third party (a physical person or legal entity), allowing them to become owner of the work.
There is a major tax saving when leasing rather than purchasing a work of art.

Carol Becker Lacave
In charge of Art activities
With more than 20 years' experience in the world of luxury marketing and communication (12 years with LVMH Paris & London then consultant in Shanghai), I joined Be-YOU in 2012 as an Associate Director, having lived for 10 years in China. My professional expertise, combined with a boundless creativity and my passion for art, enables me to define a unique development strategy customised for each of the artists whom we represent. In other words, I shine a spotlight on their artistic work — "lux" meaning light in Latin. I provide a 360-degree promotion for them: positioning the artist, communication and commercial development strategy, participation in Salons, collaborations with other artists, and producing our own exhibitions. I am active in the EVENTS section of the agency — essentially in the part of the event concerned with the choice of the theme and its artistic roll-out.
CEO of ACE Group, London
I am a Non-executive Director of Be-YOU based in London, and initiated Frédérique and Carol's meeting and working together. I joined them in 2013. I am an agent for world-renowned athletes such as Gilles Simon and Stefanos Tsitsipas in the tennis world, and my real passion is discovering future talents and bringing them to the height of their careers, managing their development and their promotion.
I am the founding President of the private UK "The Boodles" tennis tournament, and I handle all aspects of sports events. For Be-YOU I act as a consultant, advising on promoting artistes and on Events activities, securing the best talents in the worlds of tennis, golf, football, polo etc, for hospitality events
In charge of Events
Founder member of the agency in 2011 and Associate Director, I produce all our events. I am the architect, the builder, of the Be-YOU team; the person who takes an idea, a feeling, a main theme, draws up a plan and stages the experience that will highlight your brand. I am passionately meticulous about these logistics, and the attention to detail which allows the unforeseen to be transformed into an opportunity. I worked for 10 years managing the careers of international tennis players and organising sports events (ProServ – ISE International), then ten further years in the world of airlines (Corsair and Air Liberté) as Operational Marketing Manager, so my palette of skills contains all the colours of the events industry. I am active in the ART operations, in calls for projects, administrative and digital follow-up of artists, and in the organisation of logistics for exhibitions and Salons.
Director of the Stay Tunes Agency
I have been immersed in the organisation of artistic events for more than 25 years, and I apply my know-how to the world of Entertainment, the events that we have been co-producing with Be-YOU since 2016. With my feet on the ground and my head in the stars, I offer the chance to share special moments with artistes and other leading figures. I am committed to bringing all the human, aesthetic and technical conditions together so that they will combine to create the very best situation and create the alchemy that will provide an unforgettable experience for you.
