Vivid Portraits From Françoise Nielly

We’ve posted about Françoise Nielly before, and her work has continued to impress us. Considered a knife-painter, her ability to capture the personality of a face with such quick, rough strokes is truly a mastered skill.  Her more recent body of work has the same vibrant colors, but it’s more mature and less jarring to the eye than her earlier paintings. The color seems slightly less electric, yet still distinctively hers. Brought to some level of fame for a painting she did of Barack Obama, she has continued focusing almost exclusively on portraits.
