Artist Inspiration : Loui Jover

Loui Jover was born in April 1967 in Europe, but migrated to Australia with his family at a young age. He’s based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Loui works with ink and gouache, drawing over vintage papers, books and music manuscript. He loves using collaged paper items and old printed stock. I’m a big fan of collaged art myself, perhaps that’s why I find Loui’s work so appealing. His favourite subjects are women, specifically their faces, and he utilises the pages of vintage books as his backgrounds to convey a sense of fragility. He also paints other subjects, romantic ones such as lovers embracing or walking under umbrellas in the rain. I love his black and white ink dripping paintings, which are reminiscent of the work of graffiti artist Banksy. I also love Loui’s super-colourful, super-saturated works.

Here are some write-ups about Loui Jover’s art, which make for interesting reading:

As for me, I just want to immerse myself in Loui’s fantastic artwork. And perhaps be able to buy some of his art through Saatchi Art Online, where he is a featured artist.

Meanwhile, enjoy these examples of Loui Jover’s art, which I’ve pulled from Google.
