Johnny Morant Puts an Abstract Spin on Traditional Life Drawings

Johnny Morant is an artist currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Working predominantly in oil on canvas, he has created a series of nude painted portraits that will bring to mind traditional life drawings. Although full of details, there's something abstract about the whimsical use of brush strokes and muted colors. Johnny Morant manages to straddle the line between surreal and real in his artworks.

About his artworks, Johnny Morant explains that "by playing on the border between clarity and suggestion my work prioritises the intuitive application of paint and aims to capture the viscosity of light and insecurity of form." With this in mind, it's hard not to get caught up in his vision entirely.
