Portraits by Ros.

e65b1555cd3a9273a63026ba8d663eb06122e1ba_600Self-taught French artist Lou Ros kicked off his career by tagging walls and buildings with friends at the age of 17.
Today, he’s exhibiting his paintings all across the world and has made a solid reputation for himself amongst the global art community.
This particular series called ‘Portraits’ hints at his ‘street art’ past.
He explains: “To captivate the eye by transforming the clear into a blur and the fixed into a movement is an active ingredient in my research.
I paint in a very instinctive way, following the example of the expressionists who fascinate me.

“Through the colours, brush strokes, composition, background and rhythm of the painting, I attempt to create works which truly represent bodies in a space without distortion.
Without having a clear idea of the final result, I stop my work before it seems finished.
The moment where little is enough to suggest the structure interests me, leaving the spectator’s imagination open at the moment the scene is starting to appear.
Knowing when to stop before saying too much is what I tried to do.”
