Jean-Pierre Roy, who currently lives in NYC and teaches at the New York Academy of Art, paints in a photorealistic manner while still thriving off of the imagination. His artwork depicts larger-than-life scenes taking place involving casually dressed young men oftentimes shrouded by geometric shapes obscuring their faces, heads, and sometimes bodies. The grandeur in scale coupled with the sometimes aggresive-looking actions of the giant subjects creates an ominous feeling that permeates throughout Roy’s work. Almost as if communicating that the actions of men carry giant or unintended consequences that affect our entire landscape. Jean-Pierre has been featured in galleries and magazines all over the world for this body of work.
