In this artwork I use strips of paper that I stuck with decoupage
In other works, I use small pieces of paper which I cut into triangle.
I sort these in different color piles that act as an colour palette.

Please come with a comment or two

This is...... is.... odd?
But Kind of cool.... Too bad the photo isn't more lined up, but I guess it can show the 3D of it more from this angle...
Mind outlining the creation process?
What did you use to make the face? or did you just do like an hour of paper mache?

It looks awesome! As others have said, it would fit right in an art gallery. I think it's a little creepy with all the eyes, but maybe that's just me.

I think the photo itself could use more lighting though.

the creation process was about 2 weeks ok the photo is not a proper face photo but as you said
it gives a little 3D angel to it.

For those of you that says it belongs to a art gallery, I just humbly bow.. :o)

Just to give you all somthing more to think or comment about here comes 2 more in the same theme..

"Urban sound" and "Mental Caos"

The later one sold though

The painting is made on an 40x50 cm canvas, the face is a mask that was white from the beginning
and it´s stuck to the canvas with the stripes of paper. The tricky part of the process was to make
the colours to smoothly blend in from canvas to the face. All the eyes comes from varius magazines that I collect from here and there. The face/mask was made first and when I build the rest of the painting from there. Most time goes to compare piles of paper in different colours, the best with this is that as long theres no glue on it I can just blow them away and start all over if I´m not satisfied.

Hope this gave a little more info on the painting. Any other questions? Just rackém up :o)

You got a good thing going here I think. Perhaps also post the titles? If I have to suggest anything then I think it would be nice if you found a way to make the collage seem a bit less chaotic. But that is just my opinion :)

Thanks for the replay, well conserning my caotic paintings.. well I am an artist and those paintings are a mirror of the feelings that surrounded my body at the time. Thats what art is all about if I like
to make a painting it will always have a reflection of my soul.

But to give you a new angle of my artwork´s here is my latest piece, I think they are less caotic.
I think I´m feeling wery well at the moment :o)

The titles in order of appearance, 1. Frustration 2. Mental Caos 3. Urban Sound 4. Music maestro...

1. Well I think the Title says it all,

2. When you feel that your soul rips apart, this i my impression of it....

3. Living close to a big city...sort of... Anyway it´s like we connect to them by there transmissions
the small squares represent grassroots that are oppressed and seeks away to find a way
to the big channels.

4. This is for my regular PUB, it´s nice to be surrounded of you paintings and a bit surreal :o)

For those of you that would like to see my art in an Art Gallery, please,,,, I am quite sure that
you already know where my art would fit. Give me a PM

Title: The Egypt cat

Acryl painting that a friend ordered in august, with the specific request "CAT". But it took about
two months to catch the motif. It%u015B got a cat and little sketchy hieroglyphs and of course "My" eye%u015B
that will watch him forever. Now to the tricky bit he hasn't paid yet... its like $70 (Yea I know I%u1E3F to cheap)
Maybe I should visit him with a wrench or something.. :o)

If you have another idea please comment.

Title: "Superevil Superhero"

Take an image and make a poster. This is a play with things, a bit of photoshop and
strict colours.

I like the spirit of this one :o)

A local restaurant gives me a free, well sort of 15% commission for a one week
exhibition with free advertisement in the local papers including an article.

This is one of the artwork that will appear

Title: "Inca"

If you want to buy it you better be fast :o)

From my perspective a little more minimalist, sort of...

I hold back for the benefit of the smooth colours :o)
