Power of 3
New York – The Krause Gallery presents "Power of 3"
To create those pieces, I focused on the intuitive process and ideas about our lifestyle and behavior behind your faces. Together with which we try to create a “mask” that could represent any of us into the art world.
All the works were created with mixed media and specially with a handmade oilbar created by myself. It’s also part of the creative process during the paintings. He grew up in the middle of inks, papers, pens and many scribbles on his house walls.
Adept of a minimalist lifestyle, the artist carries more than 13 years of experience in research and artistic development.
From urban art to contemporary studies, looking for not settling on one style, prefers to keep open to the experiment. In baggage, always the underground reference and the concept of “luxury from the rubbish” to add to his remarks, which also involves the chaotic human behavior.
Part of a “intuitive – expressive” creative process and reaching the image of a face, for him, everything is represented in our face -It’s the only thing that shows our personality, experiences and true feelings.
