The Rise of Art by romainjl The Rise of Art by romainjl
Please tell me wether or not you can see the lady in red of this picture.

On this piece, cycle of art from Spleen to Ideal is depicted as a chaos rising from the left of the sun turning into harmony through an allegory of Art.

So much expression I dont even know fully what to say! Amazing work!!
I see the woman in the front. The character kind of reminds me of the sorceress from FFIX but with a flat yet sharp design and a smooth elegance.

One question: Is that a man in the back of the woman laughing? If so, good touch!

I'm glad you like the elegance in the woman.
Behind her, I originally depict more abstract marks of chaos.
But every pair of eyes sees what it has to see.

The second I say this, I threw my cat off of me, and gasped. Pretty damn sexy, if you ask me. The black is so crazy strong, especially with all of the directions its going. Feels like a shattered window sorta. The colors are also amazing~ :love:

Fantastic! I absolutely love this piece. I like that the woman isn't visible at first...the color, abstract lines and overall composition captivate you first, and then you suddenly see her after staring at it for a while. It's like finding a secret picture within another picture. Outstanding work!

Wow, this is , like, an explosion of creation and inspiration!! Although, what seems to look like a crack in the art, which looks identical to one that you would see in a window or mirror, it almost looks like it is trying to say that reality or this world is tainted or damaged.

Truly amazing piece of work. It's really beautiful!

strong piece... absolutely love it. :-)
bold n grungy but with a very organic feel... is that why you put it in the category "people" ?


(PS- i got a feeling that it'll end up on my living room wall soon *g*)

Yes, even the woman doesn't take much space compare to the canvas... but I really feel she is the most important part of it. So the people category was best fit to me!

(So happy it gives you the impulse of displaying in your home)

That is a unique style you have. I really like this, and the colours are awesome. They look very genuine. Almost like hand painted. It's one of those painting where the more you look the more hidden things you find. Reminds me of a painting I had in my room when I was a kid. Used to scare the shit out of me thou!:D
