Paintings by Inès Longevial

As the winter days stretch on and our neighborhood color palette is limited to beige, brown and grey, I find myself gravitating toward artwork that embraces bold, bright color unabashedly. French artist Inès Longevial celebrates the human body in such jubilant colors and shapes, and hints at sensuality and form in a subtle but palpable way. If, like me, you idolize people who have such a wonderful grasp on color theory and how to combine hues in a powerful way, be sure to check out Inès’ website and Instagram feed. They are sure to brighten your day. xo, grace

    I love how graphic her work is whilst still maintaining that tangibly made by a human feel. The colours in that first image are stunning

    So crazy about colors and this will become my new addiction on Instagram.
    And for once it’s a french girl, I will be happy to get one of her creation.
