Do you recognize this view? The imaginative palette – vibrant cobalt blue mixed with complementary red and green – creates a surreal scene which is all too familiar to any of us who live and work in the urban Toronto environment.
This painting would be equally at home in a cool condominium, or a corporate setting. The warm wood of the sideboard and cognac lounge chair balance the metropolitan subject matter.
Find some inspiration from Nelson Cheng’s story! His trained background is architecture and design, yet as an artist, he is self-taught….and he won the inaugural season of the TV show, Landscape Artist of the Year Canada.
Cities are infinitely complex places – and we are all part of the milieu. Christina Sideris, aka Equipoise,
illustrates this point beautifully, digitally layering images with pulsating colours, echoing the vibrancy of city life.
By lighting the images from within, she adds more vibrancy, and pushes the boundaries of visual presentation for digital artworks. Her lightboxes can be created at HUGE sizes, creating an immersive environment.
Here, the art becomes a window onto our vivacious city. The crisp white frame suits this fresh interior.
She says, “I want to harness the energy and flow of chaos in an urban city, next to the unwinding calm stillness in the desert.”
