Christian Develter, ‘Chunghua’, 2016, Artist's Proof

The precision and perfectly executed details from expressions to accessories bring each figure to life by Develter’s soft and balanced brushstrokes. Each personality is highly stylized, placed in exaggerated poses either formal or playful, as if being fully aware of an onlooker’s regard. The human gaze has enthralled artists for centuries. From Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Andy Warhol’s Marilyn, the power of an artist to capture such vivid expressions is priceless. Develter’s ability to create figures that capture humanity in its most organic form, through the visual gaze is a testament to his talents as an artist.
