The best way to describe my artworks and style what Cassie Rief written about my paintings in one of her articles in the Emptyeasel website.
Do you ever just want to take a break from the real world? Jlilati modern expression paintings, allows you to do just that.
Esam Jlilati paints remarkably detailed pieces that smoothly transition from ancient architecture to fantastic surrealism and modern cityscapes. His seamless way of mixing these three subjects has resulted in a colorful style that’s uniquely his own.
Esam’s vibrant use of color and wacky, undulating lines remind me of graphics in a Dr. Seuss novel—creating a heartwarming and welcoming painting. Under the light of the moon, people sleep contentedly, knowing a peace and comfort that so often eludes us in the real world.
The colors are uplifting and bright, even at night, as if the jovialness of the street and its inhabitants cannot be contained. Restaurants and stores are completely open to the public, outwardly welcoming them with bright mats that beckon passerby in for a late night coffee or impromptu shopping trip.
Waves rhythmically lap against the darkened brick wall of a magical waterway taking us into the heart of this fair city. Bowing windows, sloping two-story houses and winding pathways provide interesting views into nearby homes.
