ANTOINE CORDET

Paris-based artist Antoine Cordet‘s art touches on melancholy and nostalgia but his general outlook is positive because art gives him liberty to be who he has always wanted to be. Antoine Cordet created his personal style through intense trial and error and a work ethic that makes him one to really keep an eye on. His images are haunting and calming at the same time. It is almost like Cordet knows something we do not and is constantly hinting at what we should be aware of even when it is not overly conspicuous.

Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, his style is a synthesis of realism and abstraction and with a highly accomplishment in aesthetic. His portraits feature subjects coloured with mute tones of blacks, whites, and greys, that are then injected with dashes of electric blues, greens, and reds. He also applies thin layers of semi-transparent white pigment across his subjects’ faces, rendering them devoid of emotion.

Antoine Cordet decided to pursue a full-time career as a painter after a brief stint studying architecture and furniture design. He received the award for the catagory visual arts from the Academie des Beaux-Art in Paris in year 2014.
