Pigmented and painterly perfection, the works of artist Valentin Dommanget conjure up wonderful worlds with mere brushstrokes.
The Central Saint Martins graduate specialises in digital stretcher studies, where spray pigments and chemical solutions come to life on canvas.
A marbled and speckled effect morphed onto the organic canvas structure appears as mottled stone, creating what appear like magical minerals with other-worldy elements.
Dommanget's ability to create such unusual beauties through unusual means make these pieces even more mesmorizing, with each view revealing another hidden element of colour and form.
Once you have looked upon these pieces it becomes truly difficult to look away, and only an urge to acquire one remains. Valentin Dommanget takes you into these canvas worlds and you become lost there is rivers of colour.
What a nice place to be.
