Jason Bryant evokes the glamour of old black and white movies with oil paintings that are a mix of film stills and magazine photos, albeit with a mighty contemporary touch: pixilated eyes. This dose of mystery and humour give these paintings a flair that speeds up the tempo in portraits that capture the cheekbones and poses of stylish elegance. Pretty colourful for black and white.
