Ready to Hang
This is one of my most recent paintings, I wanted to play a little more with geometric forms and mixing the textures of the acrylic and the oil paint in one big piece.
The painting represents to me a leap of faith, but some people interpret it as a fun happy figure...
The dimensions of the artwork alone are 27" wide x 46" high on a stretched canvas of 1" deep.
It comes framed in raw wood, 28.5"x47.5"x2.5"
The frame was made by me but it can be unscrewed if you want a different type of frame.
The photos are from when it was just and sketch to now hanging in my studio waiting for its new home.
Karlo Henry Velazquez, born in Barcelona Spain and grew up in different cities all over Mexico, currently lives in Redding California USA. He is an electronic engineer by profession, but discovered his passion for painting at age 17 after taking an art history class at the Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey. Since then, he has taken art classes and workshops at the Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey, Instituto de Bellas Artes de Queretaro and the University of Texas in Arlington. His style began as collages and snapshots of ideas and evolved into more surreal portraits of hearts as seen in the series "CorazonEs:" ("HeartIs:"). He has created a diverse range of paintings that demonstrated influences from popular Mexican folklore and painters like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and other Mexican painters With his latest works, he has moved into an experimental phase with his series "Viva el Pop!" where he pays tribute to the 80's and the Pop movement of American culture.
