Hopare Street artist

Hopare is a French street artist who created work on a large scale. He uses spay cans and strong black lines that capture the contours of the face.

Hopare’s work interests me with his bold use of colour, he uses different colour blocks to give the illusion of shadowing. I admire the hot and cold colours that he uses to depict light and shade in the face. Hopare’s portraits are realistic yet retain a graphic raw starkness to his images. The overall effect  catches the attention of the viewer.
