PAINTINGS BY LOU ROS

When we started our research on artists we came across the great artworks made by French Lou Ros whose focus lies on portraiture paintings and drawings of bodies in a space without distortion. His oil paintings on canvas are undoubtedly mind-blowing.

“…Basically, I’m more interested in a search for freedom and strength in an unfinished painting than the perfection of a well-finished canvas, which only shows technical prowess.” Paris-based Ros comes from a background in graffiti which might be an indicator for his rough and, in a way, powerful style. He transforms the clear into a blur and the static into something movable.
“I paint in a very instinctive way, following the example of the expressionists who fascinate me.” says the 29-year-old painter who stops working on his works before they seem to be finished.
We have selected several portraits we particularly enjoy!
