BIOCHROMATISM 1 / PAINTING

Amsterdam, Netherlands. Last months I’ve been investigating on my abstract line of work and different color palettes, as a result of different tests and experiments, I created a complete new series of big paintings with an organic Hard Edge style, more minimal than my usual abstract paintings, where the color has an important role and visual impact.

Check out this awesome book to get you started: Think Small: The Tiniest Art in the World, by Eva Katz. This book describes the work of twenty-four artists who work on an incredibly small scale. Here are four artists I love to share with my students as we begin our lesson. Hasan Kale paints on small surfaces with an astounding intensity. Talk about an engaging artist to teach to your students! Rosa de […]
