Logo - seriously cool! Look at that geometric perfection!
Ever since I was little I have enjoyed geometry. I think if I had of been born today I may have been diagnosed as having a mild form of Aspergers. Everything has its place, I don't like small gaps between furniture (they make me anxious) and the thought of an incredibly large social gatherings make my skin crawl. An equilateral triangle is the most perfect shape. What is the point of this self-diagnosis? Well, I have found something that meets both the geometric and OCD traits of my personality but also my hip-hop/retro/yuppie style.
Perfect is a word I very infrequently use, especially when describing art. (Plus being a god-fearing man only god is perfect!) This come as close a possible to being perfect. I recently discovered it when spending sometime browsing Facebook (procrastinating) and was instantly engrossed by the geometric shapes, exquisite colour combinations and hand-drawn minimalist geometric art. The art appears to me to almost be akin to a post-modern form on traditional sanskrit or indian mandalas. It has a tribal feel but would look good anywhere from a bedroom to a kitchen/dinning/lounge room.
This is a serious watch-this-space scenario. I give this up and coming artist a few months before she is displaying her art at some major galleries. She has already been taken on to design the cover of numerous books, the latest Raw! came out last year and published independently. It was a cookbook from San Benito a holistic healing farm stay in the Philippines.
This artist has an impressive repertoire of both traditional and digital art, showing just how versatile the modern artist has to be in order to make a living in the current day and age. It is't enough anymore to simply paint and draw. One must be able to do this perfectly, but also to be able to crate logos, format documents/books, design corporate stationary, design websites and do postproduction of photographs. By becoming a one-stop-shop for all your corporate and personal creative needs seems to be a recipe for success.
Why am I sharing this? What makes this so special? Well to begin with, it is the first time I have ever seen art and then been compelled to tell others about it. Usually that is isolated to coffee, bars, restaurants or whiskey, which I have tried and enjoyed so much I feel a need to share the experience! This is exactly the same, I want others to see and experience the same wonder and awe at this seriously cool art.
She has recently been exhibited in Melbourne at Paradise Hills a boutique gallery set in a warehouse in downtown Melbourne. Now she has just put some of her artworks on sale online and I can't wait to get mine. It is only available online at Luca Battles. At $75 for a print it is only 30 cups of coffee (yes that is my currency!) Have a look and I think you'll agree, it was worthwhile sharing!
