SERIES "BEHIND THE BRUSH"
"I've been working for the past few months on new experiments, new materials, and new ideas because I've always felt frustrated to only use separately digital skills or physical paint on my artworks and decided to go forward and mix it all.
The main point here is to synchronize both to get the best of it. I aim to get very interesting textures, brushstrokes and mixes of paints the old fashion way, but applying them on deep colors you can only get in new materials using latest technology.
The background is made of a digitally reworked photo/drawing/painting printed on aluminium at a very high temperature using a new technology called the Subligraphy, upon which I'll use long drying acrylic or oil paint.
This series depicts the duality between figurative and abstract, but also the symbiosis of them by playing accordingly with the light surrounding the artwork.
Sometimes the lighting will pop the colours out and show amazing depths and shades, however the next day it will feel like the whole background fades out and lets the physically painted brushstroke seem weightless and isolated."
