Adventurous

Andrea Silvestri's avatar Andrea Silvestri

-Sketch- 2 piece artwork (40x40in each) Art tends to be a natural reflection of the environment in which the artist was raised. My case is no exception. Through most of my artworks, I attempt to project the slower pace of life, unique musical sensibilities, and the colorful scenery that characterize the “island life” present in most of the islands of the Caribbean. My artwork generally consists of bold lines, abstract patterns, vibrant, eye-catching colors, and a subtle cubist influence. The majority consists of abstract portraits that incorporate elements of nature such as leaves, flowers, and the hues of tropical fruits. I perceive the women I paint as nymphs -- young women that inhabit the mountains, forests, and waters of tropical islands. Nymphs are known for their free-spirited and adventurous character, the same character that island girls are known for. The sketch above portrays two nymphs, having the Caribbean Sea as a backdrop.
