VANITIRA

The Saturated Palette
March 10 – March 30, 2017
Reception: Thursday, March 16, 2017 6-8 PM

Vanitira’s digital paintings have a depth and texture that are not normally seen in digitally created work. While sharp lines and geometric patterns are present, his images also possess a natural, handmade quality. Printing his paintings on canvas, he creates a body of work that is a hybrid of digital and traditional art, mapping out a territory that illustrates the best of both forms. “What differentiates my work,” he says, “is that despite the digital technique used, the result is a work in which you can appreciate the nuances, shades, textures and everything that can be seen in an oil painting.”
 
The artist builds his images from many sources, including drawings, photographs and previously unfinished artworks. Through the process of combining his materials, Vanitira undertakes a journey of discovery, using his distinctive sense of color, line and form to bring out the meanings that lie beneath their surfaces. In particular, his skill at handling colors in subtle, unexpected ways gives each painting a power and energy the powerfully pull the viewer in. Vanitira lives and works in Barcelona.
