PHILIPPE ATTIE

ATTIE

As an aspiring visual artist, I strive to capture facets of the human soul through a fusion of realism and a diffused abstract style. Defined by sensuality, wisdom, and the wonderful, my work inspires lightness in the subjects and their movements. Over the years, I’ve developed a keen sense of observation in my subjects. Each detail unveils an expression of myself.

Since I was 11 years old, I’ve been captivated by painting and the intimacy it reveals. While I mostly work with acrylic and oil on canvas, I occasionally experiment with painting on wood or aluminum panels to enhance the structure of my creations. My subjects include nude models and a vast array of objects. The transparency of my work is a blended form of precise realism and elements of spontaneity expressed through gestural freedom.

My goal is to communicate complex emotions through my work and visually express passions and desires. Through my style, technique, and color choices the audience can connect on a deeper level and experience enriched emotions.
