Style of Portrait

Portrait artist Mary Osinibi interpretation and observation of a person character arguably produces a much more interesting, mysteries and dimensional record of that person’s existence that will last for generations.

Working in her signature style of paintings built up from multiple layers of applied acrylic paints with a wide variety of hues and shades merged with digital art. Mary's signature style is inspired by the “Fauvism” style which began around 1900 by a group of Modern artists whose works emphasized painterly qualities and strong colour over realistic retained by impressionism. Artist included Henri Matisse, Andre Derain and Kees Van Dongen whose portrait of Mademoiselle Bordenave (1905) is one of Mary’s favourite fauvism styles.
