antoine cordet

These haunting, sort of sad, portraits feel like they should be posted on a Monday morning on a dreary day at the end of January, but here we are on a sunny Friday in the middle of August. They might be quiet / sombre but the mixed media work {acrylic and marker on canvas} of Paris based artist Antoine Cordet makes me very, very happy. So much emotion, so beautifully executed… and perhaps an appropriate way to end a week filled with far too many sad headlines.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone xo

    I think there is a beautiful use of “there” and “not there” in the portraits and for me the white really has a power. Thanks
