If you see animals, you’re a rock star!

My Latest creation is a triple abstract painting made of acrylic, some trimmings, marker and nail polish. This is what I call mix technique!

I really like this work because even though it meant to be an abstract painting, those with developed imagination started seeing animals. I’m super curious on what people can see here, everybody creates different paintings depending on what their minds and eyes combine. It’s like playing with the clouds!

Can you see them? if so, please comment below what you’ve found.

Note: No animals or monsters have been intentionally painted on this canvas.

Flying with style – Pio Collage

Once upon a time, when studying at university, I had an assignment for Product Design where the idea was to redesign a bird. A very interesting and entertaining homework because it allowed me to play a lot with all the characteristics of the birds, an animal that I really like.

Among all the characteristics I redesigned, one was their feet. I changed their feet so they can wear cool sneakers. Almost 7 years later my dream came true and I am painting those birds wearing Vans, Dr Martens and Converse. I hope you like them!

Abstract Expressionism – Cool Contemporary paintings by Linda O’Neill (@AbbyCreekArt)

Surfing the web, I came across with some abstract paintings that really caught out my attention, mainly because of the bright colors, the perfect and balanced composition and the different materials used.

Investigating a little bit, I discovered AbbyCreekStudios. Linda is a Californian artist who for the past 17 years devoted herself to abstract expressionism. Her creative voice expresses herself in different ways; bending and shaping using acrylic paint, collage, ink and whatever else she can get her hands on. She really knows how to let her mind to fly!

She works on canvas, paper and wood. The last ones are my favourites!

This is my top 10:

The art of making collages

A collage is a piece of art made by sticking various different materials such as photographs, postcards and pieces of paper or fabric onto a backing. I combine in my collages images that once have called my attention and have entered into my “Collection Envelope” till I find the perfect canvas to paste them. I love dropping some acrylic stains to integrate and balance the whole piece.

Here is my Collage Gallery from the last year.

Rolling the San Martin

Traveling to work is one of the most boring moments of the day for many people. Passengers generally use this dead time for reading the news or private messages on the phone.

For me, traveling by train in the morning was one of the best 30 minutes of the day. I enjoyed observing the people. Their behavior, their faces, their clothes, their gestures. Everything. The line San Martin has the most interesting and various travelers. And every stop brings new faces and stories.

One morning, I saw this beautiful short-hair girl isolated in her own world, her music, her headphones. In love with this image, I decided to capture it with my precarious nokia C3. The quality of the photo is of course very poor, but at least I could record that unique moment. Because of the beauty of that very simple but exclusive image, I wanted to reproduce the picture on my canvas but with more pixels :­)

Hit the road Ray!

Hit the road Ray!

Ray Charles (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American singer-songwriter, musician and composer. He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings. Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business”. Although his difficult life, Ray always had THE BRIGHTEST SMILE. I think this great musician deserves a portrait, and here is my version!

BTW, the movie “Ray” is strongly recommended! It’s the story of the life and career of the legendary musician.

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

I think I don’t need to explain why I decided to do a portrait of Audrey. She is a goddess and this is my way to express it. Technique: Acrylic on paper
