Pedro Bonnin
Mexican, b. 1967
Follow

Self-taught Mexican painter Pedro Bonnin creates lavishly rendered, hyperrealistic paintings in oil that combine whimsy and provocation. His stylish paintings of tumbling, lingerie-clad people wearing sunglasses call to mind the cheeky and subversive work of fashion photographers like Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin, while his close-up portraits of men and women contorting their faces are a virtuoso display of illusionistic technique. As a young man, Bonnin traveled to Europe, where he visited galleries and studied Italian masters like Giotto and Simone Martini. A student of philosophy as well as art, he uses his artwork to explore ideas of reality and perception, as well as Picasso’s maxims that art is a weapon and a lie that speaks about the truth.
