Artist's description:

Highly textured modern impressionist palette knife ( impasto ) oil painting on stretched canvas ( square format ), sizes : 25 x 25 cm, depth - 2.50 cm // 10'' x 10'' inches, depth - 1 inch.

This palette knife oil painting is part of my series ''Abstract cityscapes''. I started this series years ago and it is a recurrent theme for me. In general, I prefer to stylize the architectonic details of the houses. I paint mostly abstract cityscapes, as my main goal is to deconstruct the real architectonic shapes ( than to render them exactly as in reality) and to translate them practically in differently morphed color spots interacting with each other in various ways for generate the painterly quality of the textures, that I love so much.

This work is from my ongoing series of Barcelona abstract cityscapes. I started this series after I traveled in Barcelona in 2010 and I was impressed by the unique beauty of this city shaped by the genus of Antoni Gaudi.
An experience I'll never forget was at sunset when the rippling contours of the stone facade make it look as though Sagrada Familia is melting in the sun,while the towers are topped with brightly-colored mosaic.

oil paints, canvas, palette knives
