Artist Jone Bengoa Captures the Windows to People's Souls

Jone Bengoa's water color paintings could be taken as proof that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Focusing specifically on this facial feature and nothing else, he brings to life the vast amount of emotion that lies behind the eyes in a masterful way. It's almost mind-boggling just how much emotion Jone Bengoa is able to harness for each of his paintings.

This is even more impressive once a person learns that Jone Bengoa is young 19-year-old Spanish artist. Full of color and detail, the painted portraits are captivating. My Modern Met notes, "It demonstrates just how much can be shown in a single look. Anger, sadness, confusion, and surprise are conveyed via the shape of the upper eyelid and a simple furrowing of the brow."
