Herluck Antoine Blémur creates dramatic acrylic paintings that combine a neo-expressionist and abstract style. Each image is highly emotive and goes beyond the visual aesthetic to convey higher truths about our human existence and its place in the broader universal tableau. A strong use of color and line, along with a distinct sense of rhythm/movement, converge to form dynamic compositions in which the viewer can always find something new embedded within the painting.
In Blémur’s work, one can clearly see the influence of such artists as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Frida Kahlo, but what’s even more fascinating is the symbology embedded within the confines of the canvas. As Blémur explains, “I’m fascinated by life and its mysteries…my inspirations are the intricacies of life, love, and pain…and I consider my art the voice of my soul.”
