Happy Friday! This week I wanted to show two artists who translate a city into art in their own style.
Wu Guanzhong was a contemporary Chinese artist whose style reminds me of some of the impressionist painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I love how simple and sketchy his painting style is while still translating the image of a city to his viewers. The colors are also fabulous!
Minh Dam presents another view of the city – a view from the streets rather than Guanzhong’s viewpoint from the oustide looking in. Dam is a watercolorist, architect, and interior designer from Vietnam and currently working in Poland. His style is a little more realiztic than Guanzhong’s but the medium of water color creates a dreamlike effect—or perhaps its raining!
