Following a trip he made in the US in 1982 Benoit Dupuis was appointed by Rudy Stern, owner of the New York gallery "Let their be Neon" to be the designer for the Parisian branch of the gallery. After studying painting in Brussels and Venice, he worked in Paris as a free-lance artist applying his skills to theatre, interior decoration or public events, as well as producing large murals and architectural trompe-l'oeil.

Between 1989 and 1990 he designed and painted the seasonal haute-couture and prèt à porter backdrops for Christian Dior and in 1992 started a collaboration with French designers Garouste & Bonetti, working on various residential projects and on a scenography for a Foundation Cartier's touring exhibition.

He was commissioned for the first time in Asia in 1994 to paint a mural at the Westin Hotel in Osaka. Other jobs will follow in the region, including the Conrad hotel lobby in Hong Kong where he settled in 1996. From that time he spend his time working on various projects between France and Asia .
