Jeremy Bianco is an Australian fine artist specializing in portraiture.
Since being the “arty guy” in high school, the flamboyant design student, the 3D animator-turned graphic designer: my passion for painting has always been there.
I’ve long been a fan of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and in 2020 I painted a series of 10 black and white oil portraits of my favourite starlets. These have since sold to collectors in Australia and New Zealand through local exhibitions as well as online. More recently, inspired by a stint in northern Italy, I have shifted my focus to real-life models as I continue to develop my individual style, skills and techniques.
I admire ‘masters’ such as John Singer Sargent and William Adolphe Bouguereau, and while I can’t draw a parallel between their styles and my own, I can in subject matter, as they both famously painted graceful portraits of women.
As for contemporary artists, I highly respect the work of Chris Guest, Damian Lechoszest and Soey Milk.
It’s hard to explain why I do what I do. I’ve always been drawn to the freedom and purity of art – of applying paint to canvas and creating. I guess I just love the process, regardless of the outcome - "As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward." Vincent Van Gogh
