In this black and white composition by Belgian artist Jean-Francois Debongnie, the black flowers, rendered using Chinese ink, stand out from the muted grey background. Debongnie’s use of ink highlights the delicacy of the flowers, while also creating a dramatic fluidity and ethereal visual texture that demonstrates the sacredness of nature. His work illustrates his love for Eastern cultural and aesthetic traditions, and highlights his skill as an artist through his ability to harmoniously balance Eastern and Western techniques. Debognie’s works have been exhibited in countries such as Belgium, France and Singapore, and have been featured in Vogue Living and Elle Decor.
- +Artist Bio
Jean-Francois Debongnie, born 1968, is a native of Brussels, Belgium and has spent close to two decades in Asia. Since 1989, Jean-Francois has been residing in Singapore and initially eked out his living as a photographer, specializing in black and white photography. However, painting has always been a first love for him.
The art of Jean-Francois Debongnie, like the man himself, bridges two worlds. His works explore flowers in various forms of representation, simply because he finds flowers a fascinating subject to explore. He started out with representational flowers and evolved them into more abstract representations. Throughout the evolution of the floral representations, their overall impression has been one of movement where the fluid stems of the flowers give the impression that the flowers are dancing on the canvas in a celebration of life.
His works are at once vibrant and contemporary, with a cosmopolitan feel that would enliven any living space. It's all just playing with water and ink - Jean-Francois modestly professes, but of course it's a lot more than just that. His paintings are all about subtleties - he has painted the same theme over and over again and it is in the subtle nuances that his art lies. Read More
