So I found this artist on Instagram, where I find most of the modern artists I like, as well as a lot of inspiration. I was immediately struck by his approach to the figure and how he views the human body. The bodies he draws are not particularly unique, ugly or revolutionary, but the way he uses lines is really inspiring and beautiful. He draws figures, predominantly nudes, but he eliminates most, if not all, unnecessary lines and includes just enough to allude to form and gesture. His drawings are far more minimalistic and edited in comparison to how I approach an image to draw and I really respect that. In a rather unsuccessful home project, I tried to emulate his approach to minimalistic line on a larger scale, on canvas, and with glitter. I did not execute the piece properly, but I can see myself, maybe in college, experimenting on a very small scale with holding back with dense lines and simplifying my images. If not though, I still love his approach to line and figure.
He is a designer, art director, and illustrator and works a lot in graphic design and fashion and his drawings work very well with the minimalist trends, clean lines, and simple color schemes I have seen in fashion and design.
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
