George Rouy

George Rouy (b. 1994, Sittingbourne, UK) is best known for his contorting figures that subvert the boundary of the canvas. Often depicting nudes, his sensual paintings have a hazy, dream-like quality thanks to the soft, airbrush-like application of paint and the prevalence of fleshy pink coloring. Without context or characterization, these figures seem to float in endless voids of nothingness, but their movements are actually inspired by the shapes thrown by clubbers. Rouy references medieval artists, such as Jean Fouquet and Rogier van der Weyden, as well as great Modernists including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and perhaps even Marc Chagall. Rouy received his BFA from Camberwell College of Arts in London in 2015.

The artist currently lives and works in Kent, UK.
