Oil on canvas

Boris Dobre undertook a BA degree followed
by an MA at the Bucharest National University
of the Arts, Romania. Dobre works as a freelance
painting conservator and an artist. His work was
previously included in the BP Portrait Award 2014.

The portrait is of the artist’s wife, Oana. Dobre says:
‘The idea was to make the picture very simple.
All of the focus is on the head alone, leaving
everything else in shadow. That left me with the
face only, discovering it as an object, its various
shapes, hues, its beauty and its defects together.‘
