Declaration of human rights

Article2_Basse_Def

Hi there! This is my contribution for the book “Nothing to declare? Yes, human rights!” published by editions du chêne in France. A collective of artists from all over have illustrated the articles of the declaration of human rights. A wonderful project in which I was very honored to work on article 2:

“Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.”

Thank you Gerald Guerlais for putting together the project, and congratulations to all the amazing contributing artists. The publication will be available in January from Amazon France, shipping everywhere: http://tinyurl.com/jbjf4na

Adams point

View from my window in Oakland. I moved here a couple of months ago and I love it, it has a lot of character. After living in Europe for so long, it is a huge contrast to have architecture be purely functional. There is no room for ornamentation here, but in a way I really like it, it allows for bolder abstractions of things. -digital

End of an era

PDI/DreamWorks, the studio in which I worked for the past 2+ years is sadly closing down. This was such a wonderful experience for me, I am so thankful to have had this opportunity in which I grew so much both on a personal and professional way. Thanks to everyone in our team, I wish you all the best adventures for the future, and I hope our paths will cross again soon!

Outdoor abstraction

JustOutside12

Lately I’ve been feeling that studying color and light pushes me into a corner. I don’t want it to be just about capturing the subject; There are so many other things to explore, expression, abstraction, texture (to whatever degree it can be done digitally). I tried to mix light and abstraction here, and it ended up looking like an outdoor installation! Lots more to explore over here. -Digital

I enjoyed composing this image, a recursive, fractal arrangement of rectangles. I’m really into the urban landscape these days…I was also looking at the way Degas used pretty bold color choices, but they still hold together in a natural way.

Every year there is a crazy big wheel downhill race near my place. This was a leftover competitor (probably broken and left out to die). -Oil
