    Lost in Vegas

    Acrylic on oak panel with frame
    x 60 cm

    Painted in acrylic on oak wood, whose grain gives it a natural dynamic, the subject is first drawn in pencil before being painted with a brush. The bright green circle is initially laid down and then painted over in minute detail to create an illusion of transparency.

    About Laurent Minguet :

    Laurent Minguet is a French multidisciplinary artist and designer, born in 1969 in Toulouse where he still lives and works.  

    Advocate of acrylic on canvas since his younger days, he is an autodidact, teaching himself the art of brush painting while perfecting his hyperrealistic design style inspired by car “figures".

    Since 1998, driven by his first extensive travelling, he has been focusing on the landscapes particularly characterized by hyperurbanization. The completion of this work required him to visit several megacities, from Paris to Sydney,  searching for the right photographic angle of any ordinary or iconic places. In his studio, he will first orderly draw them with a pen before refining them in something remarkable for its balance of contrasts through painting.

    Since 2014, the substrates he uses such as walnut tree, cherrywood, oak tree, whether they are natural and raw, are valuable timber carefully selected so that their random veining strengthens the dynamic of a highly detailed unit. The precise and critical line crystallizes then for one moment the restlessness and the architectural intensity of his graphical composition. To «disrupt» the linearity of the fine wood, the artist is going to use monochrome acrylic in contrast to the exhibit’s photorealistic accuracy thereby revealing the force of his different interpretations. The continuous nature of the urban landscape recaptured with a brush gives the impression of a natural transparency and marks the work’s culmination.​​​​​​​
