Christian Charriere: Faces | St Barth


November 7 - November 14, 2016 

This November Space SBH Contemporary Art Gallery puts the spotlight on local artist Christian Charriere - a natural and self-taught talent, his portraits capture the very essence of his subjects.

This exhibition presents a number of iconic personalities who have inspired Charriere such as Mohammed Ali, Robert de Niro and David Bowie - as well as portraits of characters in today’s society such as the ‘hipster’ and the 'tattoo girl' who we recognise as familiar figures of today’s contemporary landscape.

His works and the precision with which he paints give his works a realism and photographic quality that is fascinating. From the glistening sweat on the skin of Ali or the fold of fabric of the shorts in the Warhol and Basquiat showdown - you can almost reach out and touch them. His use of light and shadow create striking resemblance to true flesh and his subjects come to life through his skilled depiction of them.

Christian Charrière was born in Meudon, France and lives and works in St Barth. His work is available at Space SBH Contemporary Art Gallery, St Barth. For information about available works and the exhibition, contact info@spacesbh.com"

Show runs from 7th November – 14th November 2016. Private viewing by appointment.
