Lowdown profile - Egoiste Gallery British artist Lowdown is a strong presence in the redefining of painterly portraiture for the twenty-first century. Harnessing the textural possibilities of spray paint on canvas, Lowdown creates larger-than-life portraits that fuse figurative realism with gritty urban aesthetics. His work often references religious icons, playing with light and shadow in order to venerate his subjects and sanctify the role of art in contemporary society. Capturing intense expressions and concentrated stares, Lowdown’s portraits hint at the profound thoughts behind each face, and challenge the viewer to look beyond the surface, towards a deeper contemplation of every work of art.
