Portraitist painter, Val Escoubet stands out for hyper-realistic works imbued with the emotion of the characters she applies to represent with great conviction and dynamism. The artist explores fullness, love, cheerfulness, but also body movements, like dance, which she highlights in portraits of women, men and children. The photographic portrait put on the scale of painting "I want my painting to be alive and that one has the impression that the subject will get out of the web": this is the goal it pursues with each new project. The characters are never frozen in their posture and this thanks to the work of fabrics, textures or that of hair. Val Escoubet comes from the photo, with a predilection for the black and white photo of which it is mainly inspired. We find this influence in his work. The characters are painted in "black and white" with variances of sepia, tones of blue, green, ocher, barely perceptible, but essential in the harmony sought. The choice of oil painting is then obvious for the rendering obtained, the delicacy of the nuances, the depth. Colorful paintings echoing street art To enhance the portrait thus made, Val Escoubet adorns the bottom of his works of bright colors and patterns often borrowed from the world of street art, such as graffiti and lettering. The use of acrylic paint then becomes a necessity when fluorescent or metallic colors are essential, or when multiple overlays or the use of dripping enhance the table. More than a nod to the graffiti artists to which it has great admiration, it is above all an attraction for urban art which is part of its roots and its culture. Val Escoubet also works on order.
