A cartoony airbrush WIP (Work-In-Progress). I think it could be named something like “Car-Ton”. It has references to pop culture, but without repeating it. I guess somebody might categorize it as contemporary abstract-surreal pop art. To tell the truth, I don’t categorize my art. I think (like memes) art is the sum of past, with a direction to the future.
It’s a lot harder to do paintings there and then, but it’s the only way to be fully creative (at least to me).
If only I knew how to continue with it,,, Tell me if it touches a nerve.
I found a nice method to paint, that (rather than adding dark lines of values to white background) works by making the background medium dark or black, and adding light to “illuminate” the scene.
Sometimes it was kinda scary seeing, what comes from the darkness.
Think About It
Larger version here.
This is a part of my “Surreal Superheroes” series, where I tap in to my subconscious mind, and let it make the picture preconscious.
A video, of the process:
Now this is the first of a kind for me. It was made digitally, with a Wacom Intuos Drawpad. It’s really important to me, and it works really well on a huge print, and when projected. None of the shapes are there by accident. Every shape has a connection, and a reason. A media installation as a never-ending dive in to the details of the image is also obtainable.
Here’s a detail of his head.
He is hidden, but still, you can see him. He can only be seen from his actions.
Now this could be a true disaster to all developed countries. Think how dependent we are on electricity?
To freshen the post up a bit, I included a glimpse of my art.
This one was about 6,5cmx6,5cm pencil drawing scanned, and manipulated digitally. I’ll post the original pencil drawing later!
I have made the decision to have this blog in English, even though my native language is Finnish. The reason is evident; This is the internet.
Most people stumble in to interesting subjects by accident, and / or with search words in English.
As I will share thoughts, that (hopefully) many people can relate to, they will reach more people, if written in English.
Therefore I made the (informatically democratic) decision, to have my blog in English.
