Art Contests Accepted Artists
Artist Ilie Vaduva
Chicago, Illinois USA
The name of this cycle works is Ego vs Alter Ego. It graphically describes scenes in which the characters will meet their distorted images. Those are personalized by mythological animals,chess pieces or a mix of the two. There is a constant metamorphosis in between the Ego and the Alter Ego.
Mixed media that combines graphic accents (pen,ink) with transparent layers of oil on canvas. The accents of the pen can be found in the thickness of the lines and in the points that will develop the texture. In between the textures, the ink, going from transparent to opaque, will create the focus point. The color is created by layers of transparent oil. The tones will develop the subtle transition to the dark background to create dept.
I have a broad range of experience with different media. I found certain ones more exciting then others. But there was a leitmotif: to create a well rounded artwork. I combined different techniques to obtain the most shades,textures and a dramatic contrast. A non-conventional touch of classicism in a surrealist environment,that is how I would describe my art.
