This was a quick abstract that I made mostly because I wanted to experiment with the fluidity of the paint I was working with. I used large brush strokes and heavy spirits to cover large swathes of space to create a sweeping motion of wave. The ideal characteristic for this place came from the concept of flooded urban terrain and the encroachment of water onto coastal habitation.
My name is Evan Michaels Estrada and I am a San Antonio based artist and musician whose primary genres of painting are in the vein of abstract and expressionism. Through these genres I have come to define my personal art as being the mode of communication between myself, others and the nature of reality as told through the vocabulary of color, shape, and form as opposed to drawing strictly from topical stimuli and more so exploring the reactionary emotional element of the medium. I was originally raised in Anchorage, AK before returning to Texas. In 2009 I began to study art and music at Northwest Vista College where I was first exposed to the artworks of Max Ernst, Jean Michele Basquiat and Jackson Pollack from whom inspired me to start painting. Currently I am a Picture Framer at Kurt Youngbloods Framing and Art.
