Profile picture of figurative expressionism artist, Paul-André Hamel (p.a. hamel)

This week’s Friday Feature places the spotlight on the figurative expressionism of mobile artist, Paul-André Hamel (@pa.hamel). Paul photographs ordinary people in the street and in buildings – often art galleries and museums. He then edits the photos on his iPhone with many different apps. The finished images are simplified to remove most of the detail. This technique leaves the subjects standing out as silhouettes against indistinct backgrounds of basic shapes and colour; often presenting the viewer with only a hint of the person’s original surroundings.
