About our featured artist

This week’s Friday feature is the work of Romain Bonnet (@romainbonnet1). Romain, a former professional flamenco guitarist, turned his hand to photography and art. He digitally reworks his photographs, improvising his techniques as he did as a musician, to create wild expressionistic portraits. He achieves his effects using masks and specialist brushes, aiming to create digital art as close to a painting as possible.

I have chosen three works from Romain’s Portraits 2019 series for the gallery. Look closely at the images, and you’ll see a multitude of textures, brush strokes and other elements, such as liquid spatters; all these combine to create abstracts that often use negative space to define the subject.

Be sure to follow Romain on Instagram to discover more of his fantastic work!
