... the other Black experience

Painter Jurell Cayetano wows with post-impressionist portraits

Working with gouache and colored pencil, fine artist Jurell Cayetano creates post-impressionist style portraits that so delightfully employ elements of synthetism and cloisonnism techniques reminiscent of the work of Paul Cézanne, Charles Laval, Pierre Bonnard. There’s something so pleasurable about seeing black people portrayed in the most everyday settings that emphasize and represent our humanity without needing pain or suffering to do so that’s incredibly uplifting and feel good-y.

Check out some of my favorite paintings from Jurell, below. Shop his high quality prints, here. And follow him on Instagram.
