Creating Art with texture

After creating artwork with figurative portraits, I’m back again at painting abstracts. This time playing with textures. I really liked doing this pieces, playing around with acrylic skins and textile.

After I finishes the first piece, I noticed it had the same color scheme as the previous portrait I did. My mind is a sponge for sure.

The second piece I did, I decided to add strips of fabric I had from another multimedia piece I will share with you soon. I have a time-lapse vide that I did so you can se my process. You can watch it below.

This last piece reminds me of Las Salinas in Cabo Rojo Puerto Rico, a salt flat that forms a pretty pink lake. Is a great visit if you are in the island.

Can’t wait to create a bigger body of work with skins!!

Mini Portraits Series

I love making portraits, there is something fascinating about creating faces. Every now and then I crave doing figurative work, more likely after I have painted a lot of abstract art. This small studies are 5x7 on Yupo paper and they were a lot of fun to make.

I also painted 3 mini portraits on canvas with the same color scheme. They were a challenge, the main goal was to create different faces but similar…

After taking photos of the mini faces to document my work, I realized they look like people from all over the world. I didn’t do this on purpose, but now I’m glad they turned on like that, because I’m thinking of creating a mini book or a zine around people from around the world.

My art work is inspired by my life experiences, and traveling has been very important in my life. I got to meet so many people from different countries in my travels and each of them have made a mark in me.

Let’s see where this project takes me.
