YOUTH AND AN INNOCENT BEAUTY ARE TEMPERED BY A TOUCH OF DECADENCE IN THIS INTIMATE SOLO STUDY FROM THE MASTER OF EMOTIONAL NUANCE.

Perhaps the most powerful characteristic of Fabian’s art is its ability to speak to us as individuals. His characters are telling us their stories and inviting us to join them, to move forward into our own creative adventure by their side. In this spellbinding image the wine glass and bed imply one story, but Bella’s clear eyed gaze issues a challenge to the viewer and makes us question our assumptions.

“MY PAINTINGS ARE DARK, BECAUSE I TRY TO ONLY GIVE AN IDEA, NOT EVERY DETAIL. I PREFER TO PAINT THE MOODS IN COLOUR, SO THE VIEWER GETS A SENSE OF WHAT IS BEING FELT. PAINTING IS A WONDERFUL WAY OF COMMUNICATING WITH PEOPLE. IT CAN BE HARD TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING THAT I FEEL AND, IN SOME WAY, PEOPLE UNDERSTAND WHEN THEY LOOK AT MY ART BETTER THAN I COULD EVER SAY IT.” - FABIAN PEREZ
