Franck Sastre – Pontevedra, Spain
The painter Franck Sastre presents part of his collection of paintings “Years 20” and “Ellas”. With his particular way of painting faces of women where he combines in his painting technique the real features of the face of that person shading it with their stripes and bright colors without seeking absolute realism but expressiveness in the look.
We observe that he loves to mix all kinds of paintings on the same canvas: gouache, acrylics, inks, oils, waxes, pencils, and chalks between mixing them with water and glue, plastering them mainly with his spatulas and refining the strokes with brushes.
It is curious to always see in his painting those thick strokes of dark colors that border his artistic creativity between the real and the conceptual, it is as if the mixtures of blacks fascinate him. Here we leave a representation of some paintings by the Spanish painter Franck Sastre who lives in Galicia and where he has been leaving his painting style in different exhibitions in Europe and the USA.
