Art Plural Gallery presents an interview with multidisciplinary Israeli artist Michel Platnic. The artist was in Singapore in January 2015 to unveil his solo exhibition After at Art Plural Gallery.
Born in France in 1970, Michel Platnic graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from the Midrasha School of Art at Beit Berl Academic College in Israel after spending 13 years in Electrical Engineering. Platnic's preoccupation with the human form is vivid in his latest works, where he challenges the boundaries of artistic mediums in a dramatic series of moving portraits. Created after Francis Bacon, Platnic's 'living paintings' break free from the existentialist torment that Bacon expressed in his work.
