Ines Longevial's figure paintings are not your average studies of the human body but instead feature blended body motifs. Their intertwined imagery is bold and eye-catching, revealing a palette of pastel and chromatic tones.

Experimenting with interlaced patterns, Ines Longevial creates figure paintings that tell an emotional story. They play with the perceptions of viewers and resemble abstract color studies when examined from afar. Once viewed up close, the portraits reveal lovers in an embrace or athletes mid movement.

Whatever the eye perceives is heightened by this series' vivid color palette and soft edged aesthetic. Exuding softness and positivity, the 'Realis' series highlights art director Ines Longevial's immense talent and proves that classic figure drawings do not always have to be photo-realistic.
