John Paul Fauves understands that his passion for art ‘is the soul trying to express through colors and strokes.”
Inspired by the Fauvist movement, the artist’s work emphasizes painterly qualities and bold color over the representational or realistic figure. Fauves uses intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, and redefines our color and form as a means of communication of the artist’s emotional state.
“This being an individualistic style that lacks a classical order, and which in turn uses color to communicate feelings. Expressionism is clearly my interpretation of Art. I think that art is the expression of the soul.” In the Mickey Me Collection the artist represents the loss of innocence in the human being.
“The Hedonist Mickey is a figure that seeks pleasure no matter the consequence. Mickey being a world wide iconic figure of innocence, represents the hedonist life style we have all being tempted. In this mad world sometimes just one bad choice can guide you to a dark hallway, were you will never find the way out.”
In his unique work, Defy Gravity, the artist plays on the destiny of Marilyn Monroe, death. This painting encapsulates the loss of innocence and presents it as something that can never be regained. Here color is used to project a mood and establish a structure within the work of art without having to be true to the natural world. A blurring of the figure and color plate brings a response of un-order and instability in Fauves work.
