Pastel Artworks

Perhaps more than any other color, pastel is strongly identified with what has become the millenial aesthetic. It is the color of a generation that has lived through a time of unprecedented peace in the West, which has nevertheless been punctuated by spectacular events, economic and social crises, and a general unease borne out of the distance between social consensus and social reality. It is the color which returns us to the retro placidity of a not-so-distant past, and which promises a soothing and calm environment for one's interiors.

The use of pastel in art is a massive trend, seen both in poster art and in all manner of fine art. The soft, bright colors characteristic of pastel often induce nostalgia for the simpler art and design of the mid-century and the aloof coolness of Pop Art.

As part of a home decor scheme, pastels brighten any room, and add accents which bespeak vibrancy and light-heartedness.

In his retro pastel portraits, photo artist Emmanuelle Descraques opens up the human face to a variety of associations, all defined by an aspiration to use his models to paint a picture of another era. Mixed media artist Jiwoon Pak uses soft pastel colors in his digital paintings. Reminiscent of watercolor, Pak's artworks are a kind of dreamscape of stories about discovery and frienship.
