Powerful and Enduring Portraits
Christian Rentas has the prowess to realistically depict a range of people with oil paints. Anyone who has ever used oils can attest to Christian’s accomplishment.
These paintings have a solitary power which inspires confidence and endurance. Christian opts not for hyper-realism but for large, expressionist, Basquiat-like flourishes that illustrate characters who exist within a world of their own creation.
Cross-cultural, specific, and empowering, Christian uses color and negative space to elevate his subjects. These are people who would carry on no matter what.
