Large Oil on Canvas - Double Planet (Abstract expressionist contemporary art) i

About

Presenting this bold piece with strong masterful brushwork, Alexis Portilla shows that his artistic virtuosity ranges from the strong bold and big to the fragile, vulnerable small exquisite pieces in beeswax and oil (Pale Fire). Viewing is available in Los Angeles. Alexis Portilla obtained his Master's of Fine Arts at Columbia University in 1990. His bold linear lines, use of symbols, pictographs and strong colors create atmospheric abstracts. “Using simple forms and creating swathes of rich texture, Alexis Portilla builds atmospheric abstract paintings that convey a sense of time having passed. Brushy areas of color suggest the indeterminacy of memory, while bold linear forms speak for the present.” Meredith Mendelsohn, Art News magazine review. Influenced by the emotion of artistic expression in music, poetry and literature, the artist finds bold expression in color, lines and shapes that resemble pictographs, and texture. We showcase this talented artist's sheer virtuosity both in style and use of varied medium which is apparent in his works in which he paints large oil abstracts as well as small delicate pieces made with layering of oil and beeswax (Pale Fire II) or his enamel and oil on wood (e.g. Ganymede"). This piece is available for viewing in Los Angeles by appointment. He has shown in group and solo exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His works have been commissioned by major corporations, universities and for private collections.
