Intentional Abstraction

Intentional Abstraction

Abstract art is not about putting color patches next to each other. Abstraction is taking a realistic notion, and breaking it down to its essentials. Exposing its bones, its essence. It is the art of deviation, enabling the viewer to look at it just a little differently. It is knowing how to look at things in the face and saying, I can look deeper. There is a purpose, a theme, a flow and a design to abstract art.

The Dreaded Creative Slump

The Dreaded Creative Slump

Every creative person who crosses your path will tell you that this creative slump has no end date, it is scary as can be and the more we try to think about it, the deeper the slump pulls us in. The spark, enthusiasm, impetus and momentum is missing and that is what artists fear the most.

While everyone has their own approach of breaking out of a creative rut, here are some of the things you could try when you feel stuck in the meh days. When the momentum is missing and you try hard to find the spark.

The Mad-Men Modern style evolution

The Mad-Men Modern style evolution

How does an artist find a style? Or does the style find the artist instead? Is there such a thing as a "style" or is it what feels right in that moment? For me, it has been a daily practice of feeling and expressing something onto a surface, till it felt right and authentic to what I was hoping to achieve.
