Incredible Portraits

I became aware of Philippe Pasqua’s work several months ago, and have been fascinated with it since. The oversize portraits are haunting in their use of texture and color, and the flat white background creates a beautiful stark contrast to the image. Even more amazing, is that Pasqua is self-taught. I guess he successfully debunks the myth that it requires thousands of dollars in student loans to be a phenomenal artist. I can’t wait to see more.
