Egon Vs Conrad
I love Egon Schiele. His work is raw and wonderful. Twisted bodies, decaying bodies, erotic bodies. Some artists have an innate ability with line work, creating effortless, organic pieces. Schiele was no exception. I’m sure a lot of artists are inspired by him (and his mentor Gustav Klimt) and can’t help but want to do their own studies in Schiele style. Previously, I have connected some pieces by New Zealand artist, Kelly Thompson, with some of Schiele’s nude adolescents. You can refresh yourself with my musings here. And now I recently discovered Spanish artist, Conrad Roset, who draws strong influence from Schiele. I have gathered a few pieces in which I see connections. Arguably, Roset does not have the erotic similarities of Schiele, but his style (especially the thick paint outlining the figures) is definitely a match.
