In the mist of messy brush strokes and blurry portraits hides a stunning art done by artist Paul Wright that expresses emotions and sensibility without the need of details. The UK-based painter creates pieces that debate between abstract and realism to find a particular way to convey to audiences the subjects' feelings and emotions.

These oil paintings capture the faces of individuals who seem to me wanting to be heard or understood. Their facial expression speaks loud despite being corrupted by brusque strokes; however, this irregularity in the paint gives it texture and movement. In an interview for the site My Modern Met, he explains why he focuses on the face: "The reason that I have continued to attempt to reinterpret the head is that it is an ever changing endless subject, the head contains the brain, the organ that allows to express feelings to articulate language."

Paul Wright has the artistic power to perceive the subject's sentiments in his beautiful work.
