Beau Bernier Frank is French American emerging artist and surrealist painter specializing in oil on wood panel portraits and landscapes.
Beau explain’s his work by saying, “The cohesive assembly of portraits are carefully designed with a strong attention to detail, composed with a lookbook appeal and executed in a tactical, graphic designer kind of way. Their gazes offer insight into their personalities and reveal an air of disconnectedness with an undercurrent of nostalgia––in other words, they seek to escape their reality, and to travel to those distant places painted across their faces. The various landscapes and dream-like destinations introduce bold colors and intertwine with the model’s identity.”
Beau turned to art as a means of coping with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease and it's effects.
His paintings often contain places from his travels as well as local scenes from the town where he currently resides.
