Working with Colors

Rico Blanco’s work is unique in terms of texture and composition. The abstract paintings shown above are mysterious, but the mixture of cool colors makes them interesting and fun to look at. Blanco started drawing at a young age using crayons to create pirate ships on the walls of his family home. After studying illustration at Brighton, Blanco became more serious with art and decided to work on major painting projects using brushes and paints together. The young artist finds his inspiration from photographs in old books and magazines. He is also inspired by the natural world and the human form.

David Lozeau

"Under the Islander Influence"

Detail is King, and this has allowed David Lozeau to earn numerous awards in multiple art exhibitions today. His work might appear strange to many, but it is the crazy characters and the attention to detail that makes his work stand out. The video above showcases one of Lozeau’s work and the tedious process he goes through in his paintings. The video is compressed from 50 hours of work down to 4 minutes that shows the layering process, along with the use of a fine-thin brush to outline his illustrations.
