Hummingbird - a painting of the new 'Miami Art Deco' set by Daria Bagrintseva. It is a balance between figurative and abstract painting. The paintings in this set fit perfectly into both contemporary and traditional interiors.
It is a balance between figurative and abstract painting. The paintings in this set fit perfectly into both contemporary and traditional interiors.
I created this series inspired by the spectacular, vivid, unusual and diverse architecture of Miami. The paintings reflect the cheerful and noisy night parties in the style of The Great Gatsby, passing among the splendor and luxury of nature in Florida, its tropical plants and flowers, colorful and noisy birds and animals.
I used acrylic, gold leaf, gold and metallic paints, sand from the beach, resin cover, as only with them I can do to achieve the desired effect of brightness, ricnhess, color intensity and lightness.
Prof Dr Salvatore Russo says about my Miami Art Deco series: "Her painting is full of expressive and communicative force, ir's a set of meditations on liberating function of the color and drawing, on the power of a modern and refined figurative, to achieve the desired objective. The work of Daria Bagrintseva, stron of its beautiful handwriting and the intense chromaticism, moves within channels of visual and mental suggestions."
Hummingbirds are birds from the Americas that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in). Indeed, the smallest extant (not extinct) bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm bee hummingbird weighing less than 2.5 g.
They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans. They hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates, typically around 50 times per second, allowing them also to fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph).
Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any homeothermic animal. To conserve energy when food is scarce, and nightly when not foraging, they go into torpor, a state similar to hibernation, slowing metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.
