Stunning New Knife-Painted Portrait by Francoise Neilly

As part of ST-ART, a European contemporary art fair that opens today and runs till November 25, Twentytwo Gallery is presenting new works by French artist Franoise Nielly. Nielly is known for her colorful portraits made using just oil and knives. As you can see here, her work involves thick brushstrokes of varying colors all boldly painted on until they reveal a person’s contoured face. There’s something particularly striking about this piece, I think it’s his piercing blue eyes.
