Jean-Francois Debongnie is a self taught artist, he favours large canvasses on which he explores themes that inspire him. He brings to life floral signatures which capture the essential qualities of a flower rather than strict botanical representations and as part of a landscape in fields growing wild amidst ripening grain. Their overall impression is of movement, windblown fields beneath swirling skies of monestial blue.
The use of Chinese ink adds a dramatic fluidity to all his work. In the summer series a horizon draws the eye beyond the ripe field to the turbulent stormy skies overhead and the hint of an impending storm.
Jean -Francois has exhibited extensively internationally. His work is sold at Christie’s and collected by Sotheby’s Institute of Art
