about this painting:
CITY VIBES 2
CITY VIBES ON THE CANVAS
Every city has its vibes and this one is not an exception. We see a chapel on a hardly recognizable background. Abstract canvas art ideas are not always understood with mind – there can be just impressions created by the author and transferred to the viewers. Ironically, this is the feature that makes the place extraordinary. Afremov creates the paintings that do not precisely reflect the reality. This is an excellent contribution to the abstract art as it produces the impressions and feelings instead of accurate portrayal of the scene.
There is a car in the city street on the canvas “City Vibes 2”. The canvas is covered with strokes of brush and this technique represents dynamism. We see varied artistic excellence that contributes to the beauty of the small city with such necessary elements as:
· a chapel,
· old crooked streets,
· a bakery,
· a hospital and other traditional elements that did not enter the scene but we know they are there.
Charm of a small town vs energy of a big city
We complete the painting in our heads with objects that are implied only. Looking at one street, we can visualize the whole city with its vibes. It is certainly cherished by the locals who, probably, dream of leaving the suburbs for metropolis. But even dreaming of it, they know that big cities do not have this charm. The vibrant life devours it entirely.
It is hard to tell the tale of the city with just one painting but it can produce certain impression of the city with its vibes. Impression becomes one of the tools in art that is used by the painter to influencethe audience.
It is not necessary to paint what you see. Using different painting techniques, the artist creates just certain effects. The painter develops abstract art ideas without painting the objects accurately. In other words, he creates the interpretations of what he sees and provides certain meaning to this art thatshouldnot be objective at all.
It is exciting to guess the message
An abstract painter shares certain message, whilea viewer tries to guess it. This exciting gameis worth trying.
With appearance of abstract paintings, art became more complicated and more versatile, simultaneously. What is interesting, any art lover is glad to spend additional time on guessing the feelings and attitudes.There is nothing terrible if you misinterpret the meaning. Both parties actively participate in the process and this is great.
