Budapest-based French painter Jonathan Ouisse creates beautiful line work pieces on canvas. His work ranges between dystopian and surreal scenes and detailed portraits, blending a straightforward subject with regional iconography and designs. Jonathan found his vocation at a very young age, when he was 5 years old, while flicking through a book of Caravaggio, he felt the impulse of drawing and has not stopped since.
In Ouisse’s oil and acrylic paintings on canvas, he pairs destruction and morbidity with a weird mix of animal and human interaction. None of the paintings offer overt meanings, yet all seem to exist within the same world, adorned in graffiti, living creatures, and chaos.
