Here is a 3/4 portrait of a man leaning against a palisade whose wainscotting allows the sun's rays to reflect on the bare torso and the head of the subject. Emphasis is placed on the play of light thus obtained, as well as on the perspective created by the wooden slats of the screen, which extend over the thick edge of the frame for a remarkable 3D effect. The choice of "almost everything in black and white" allows attention to be focused on the contrasts of light and the geometric design of the reflections. The background, undeveloped and slightly coloured, is discreet and serves the character whose silhouette it emphasises.

PONTONX SUR L'ADOUR (40), France

59 works

A portrait painter, Val Escoubet stands out with hyper-realistic works imbued with the emotion of the characters that she endeavors to represent with great conviction and dynamism. The artist explores fullness, love, cheerfulness, but also body movements, such as dance, which she highlights in portraits of women, men and children.

The photographic portrait scaled to painting 

"I want my painting to be alive and to have the impression that the subject is going to come out of the canvas": this is the goal she pursues with each new project. The characters are never frozen in their posture and this thanks to the work of fabrics, textures or even hair.

Val Escoubet comes from photography, with a predilection for black and white photography from which she is mainly inspired. We find this influence in his work. The figures are painted in "black and white" with variations of sepia, tones of blue, green, ocher, barely perceptible, but essential in the desired harmony. The choice of oil paint is then obvious for the result obtained, the delicacy of the nuances, the depth.

Colorful paintings echoing Street Art

To highlight the portrait thus produced, Val Escoubet adorns the background of his works with bright colors and motifs often borrowed from the world of Street-Art, such as graffiti and lettering.

The use of acrylic paint then becomes a necessity when neon or metallic colors prevail, or when multiple overlays or the use of dripping embellish the painting. More than a nod to the graffiti artists to whom she has a great admiration, it is above all an attraction for urban art which is part of its roots and its culture.

Val Escoubet also works to order. Do not hesitate to contact the KAZoART team for a quote.
