He is J. Louis.

Picasso once described art as being the elimination of the unnecessary. J Louis sees the elimination process and raises it to a whole new level.

J Louis guides us through a dreamy abstraction of raw colour, texture and space, seemingly encapsulating us within the artwork itself. We become one with the expanse, experiencing a private moment of the woman before us. She is unaware of our presence, just a fragment captured in a moment of time, yet still we can feel her fervour from the inside out like she is handing us her heart and soul.

American artist J Louis was born in 1992 and earned his BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia which actually stemmed from soccer! As an athlete, J was in the pool for the US National Soccer team, his interests divided in both sports and art. “Athletics opened the door for me to study Industrial Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design where I ended up designing a variety of products from medical instruments to driver bit cases for Snap-On Tools and later footwear for Frye Boots in NYC.” J’s passion for the arts won out in the end when he found he would gladly lose a few hours sleep for time at the easel.

Throughout his studies J was keeping up with a high demand painting commissions, predominantly of animals, while also painting figures for his own pleasure. After graduating, J decided to pursue his art career full-time, although It was over a decade before he chose to show his private work and begin painting figures exclusively.

Years of experimentation and exploration seen J Louis establish his own style which he describes as “dynamic impressionism”, constructing what he calls “moments of fleeting light, abstracted space and cleverly posed subjects.” Most importantly for J however, is to convey an emotional and spiritual dialogue through his work.

“My paintings are of empowered women with remarkable character and strength. I have had the good fortune to come in contact with such wonderful women throughout my life, and I feel such a powerful desire to recreate the grace and wonder I feel every day from such loving individuals. My wife is my primary inspiration when creating my work. I create a work of art with more emotional weight by using a subject that is empowered and of exceptional character.” J Louis - Beautiful Bizarre Magazine 2018.
