It’s interesting how a strange abstract outline can immediately process into a meaningful image to us. Pablo Picasso was a master at drawing a bunch of abstract shapes and somehow our brains make it into something. Sometimes realistic representations can be a tad boring or a bit contrived. Anytime an artist takes creative license to create something new I love the hell out of it. Italian artist Ale Giorgini creates really rad minimalist and abstract art based on pop culture figures….actually some of my favorite movies and characters!
Several years ago I became obsessed with collecting art prints from my favorite artists. I find my favorites online, at gallery openings, at comic-cons and craft fairs. I like to think of myself as a “collector”. After running out of space on my walls and money from my wallet I held myself back a bit. This blog is a great space to share some of the artists I obsess over and work that I will eventually purchase.
One of my favorites would have to be Dave Perillo. Right after becoming captivated with the show Breaking Bad I found ‘Jesse & Walter’s how to guide to not get rid of a body’ at my favorite Los Angeles Gallery 1988. I love the step by step detail and the tension from that memorable Breaking Bad episode. His work captures the essence of a movie spot on with a simple quote like “I’m your density” or “Thats no moon”.
