Florian Eymann

Self-taught artist, Florian Eymann (b. 1980 in France), is best known for his oil paintings where he explores dark themes, and experiments with form and content by dismantling and reinterpreting faces and expressions of the traditional portraiture.


Taking inspiration from the light of Caravaggio, the deformations of Bacon, the freedom of sight of Picasso and many others; Eymann developed a particular gestural methodology. By merging shapes and bright colours, the artist deliberately portrays a constant impression of construction/destruction.


His work makes the viewer discover that the representational standards can transcend by strategically incorporating abstract touches of paint which partially camouflage the work and thus letting the imagination be carried away.
