About the WorkFrançois Fressinier’s signature style superimposes his female subjects, allowing them to become one with the background. “Debbie” is an oil and mixed media on canvas. The image size is 38.5 x 38.5 — inches.
Fressinier credits music as one of his biggest influences in art and his portrait of Debbie Harris in “Debbie” is a strong example of this musical inspiration. Here, Fressinier shows the ‘Blondie’ frontwoman facing forward, powerful and beautiful. Featured with her iconic short yellow-blonde hair, and bold red lip “Debbie” is ready to electrify. Blue and yellow hues streak vertically across the image and provide a pop of colors, while the triangle shapes in various colors at the bottom add a vibrancy of this image. Fressinier has created many other masterpieces of his favorite musical icons, such as Elvis, Rihanna and more.
As a young man, Fressinier discovered the world of art and paintings, and he wanted to be a part of it. He was, as a child, surrounded by art in France because of his parents’ love of drawing, painting, and admiration for many artists. As he is primarily a figurative artist who incorporates abstract and graphic elements in his work, Fressinier feels his work aims to say that beauty is all around us, but especially within us. We are surrounded by beauty at every moment, and everywhere, it is right there as a gift, and you can receive it or reject it.
About the Artist
Born in Cognac, France in 1968 to scholarly portrait photographer parents with an affinity for aesthetics, it was fitting that modern figurative artist, François Fressinier, would develop a unique, enchanting style. His father’s admiration for the works of the Old Masters and his exposure to some of the world’s most historic places, along with France’s Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches inclined François to explore and create figurative, symbolic artwork. In addition, his education at the Ecole Brassart in Tours afforded him the opportunity to study the drawings and paintings of old and new masters. He cites inspiration from artists like Rembrandt for showing us the soul of his sitters, Van Dyke for his elegance, Bonnard’s palette, Fuchs for the fantastic world he invented; all of which influence his style today.
