Check out these haunting, sort of sad, portraits by Paris based artist Antoine Cordet. Using mixed media (acrylic and marker on canvas) in his art, he 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 Antoine knows something we do not and is constantly hinting at what we should be aware of even when it is not overly conspicuous.
