Painting: timeless art…

One of the seven arts, painting is de facto reminiscent of the paintings exhibited in the most prestigious museums, like the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. However, it is a timeless form of art which has remarkably managed to span the ages, from before Jesus Christ to Prehistory, Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. If being a painter had nothing rewarding, today its democratization has made small shadow painters into protagonist artists of society. Oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, pastel or mixed media, painting captivates in all its forms.

Pastel painting

History of pastel painting

The pastel technique has been used by artists since the Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci used it and gave it its credentials. He appreciates in this process the fact of being able to give relief to the works.

However, it was later in the 18th century that painters specialized in this discipline. A big name from this era associated with this know-how is Quentin de la Tour. After them, many impressionists such as Mary Cassatt, Édouard Manet, Edgar Degas were also seduced by pastel. Then the Nabis with Édouard Vuillard.

Description
Ahmed is part of a series of unique portraits on 50 x 65 cm paper with oil pastels. I work in complete freedom to bring you funny, mind-blowing characters, as if they came out of my dreams. Magical creatures, they merge with the dazzling color and rich rhythmic chords. Looking worriedly in all directions, they wonder about the outside world which seems very bland to them, very monstrous.
