The reason I knew I couldn't go to school is because I knew I wasn't going to find what I was looking for in there. So for this Painting I tried to create a mix of pop art and cubism techniques, of course using materials like pastels and silver spray paint.
I want to paint in series but giving every single paint I make a style and uniqueness, a soul. The reason I knew I couldn't go to school is because I knew I wasn't going to find what I was looking for in there. My process is very simple but complicated at the same time, It involves practice, patience, style and knowledge. First I choose an Image I want to paint, whether is a polaroid or a 35mm Film, if I want to paint a Polaroid the first thing is to make a 35mm black and white negative. once the negative is developed and dry, is put into a enlarger, That enlarger will allow me to project a Filtered High contrast image into a hand coated big sheet of film, and expose it for a few seconds, as soon as the image is transferred the film is developed, the result a high contrast positive transparency Image, that Image will be used to expose the Hand made Silkscreen, once the screen is exposed, developed and dry, is set aside to continue with the process. Then the film positive is used to trace the edges of the images with a carbon paper between the canvas and the film, when finished the result it's a Simple traced image. That Image is then hand painted and set aside to dry. the last thing I do is register the screen with the canvas and pull the squeegee.
