Contrasted Portraits by Jesús Devia
- Esther Jablotschkin
The 20 year young artist Jesús Devia is currently studying graphic design in Mérida, Venezuela. Being a digital artist, he handles the connection between the shown persons and their environment with the feelings they evoke and whatever they further let arise. Jesús Devia works with fine lines and the contrast of colors and neutral tones. He finds inspiration in his friend’s emotions and in the literature he reads. Out of this Jesús mostly develops portraits, which aren’t intended to show a specific moment of the face but rather shall evoke a mood, an emotion. He prefers to leave the interpretation up to the audience and so do we.
