Max’s figures and portraiture
focus on capturing the reality and
true character of his subject.
Max Mansbridge-West (b. 1993) is a UK artist, classically trained in representational art at the London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA), and self-taught. Max has exhibited throughout the country and will be exhibiting at various galleries over the coming months.
Max’s figures and portraiture focus on capturing the reality and true character of his subject. Max likes to play with and test out paint fluidity. He aims to push the brush as if he were writing poetically, with the vast diversity of brush strokes delicately pulling the light out through the painting.
Max takes joy from manipulating abstract shapes that cast light on to his chosen subject; choosing colour notes and harmonies to create a clearer insight of what is there and what intrigues him most.
He looks for personal interest around his
life trying to grasp a closer knowledge of himself and having no limits of what or where to find it.
