Lou Ros is a Paris-based artist born in 1984. Entirely self-taught, Lou began painting at the age of 17 as a graffiti artist. He is particularly interested in the relationship between the fixed image and movement with an intention to captivate the eye, and his research is characterised by the transformation of stillness to movement and clarity to blur. His work has been exhibited in France, Belgium, UAE, Italy, Russia, Slovakia, Lebanon, Germany, South Africa, UK and the US.
In his own words:
I paint in a very instinctive way. Through the colours, brush strokes, composition, background and rhythm of the painting, I attempt to create works which truly represent bodies in movement without distortion. Without having a clear idea of the final result, I stop my work before it seems finished. The moment where little is enough to suggest the structure interests me, leaving the spectator’s imagination open at the moment the scene is starting to appear. Knowing when to stop before saying too much is what I try to do.
