Big painting commissions old content posted with creative commons

Sometimes I take commissions…
This two paintings are in a “special category” of commissions because I was approached by a friend that works as an interior designer and he needed art for the houses that he was working on at the time. He had to convince the clients against some very generic looking prints that wouldn’t have looked good with his interior design and hang some original paintings instead.
The first painting was done to replace the idea of a New York skyline oversized print, so I was asked to paint a large composition on two canvases very colorful and geometric for the office, because that would have fitted better in the context of the room.

This is what I came up with
I used acrylics and the whole composition was 90/200 cm on two canvases each measuring 90/100 cm





The second painting I had to do, consisted in splashes that gave the impression of lily flowers for the living room.

The name you see in the corner of the pictures is my friend's name Robert Trusca- if you want to see more of his designs projects here is his webpage :




Even larger scale 100/200cm on two square canvases
Again I used acrylics but this time along with an impasto medium that made my paint very thick.
Instead of splashing with a brush I used large syringes and cannulas ( a bit creepy but that is what I used) :))
Unfortunately I do not have good photography of this painting where you can actually see the texture.

So this was my “special category” of commissions and I name it so because at first I was a bit thrown off by the project- it went against my way of choosing a subject and aesthetic of a painting. Even so, the moral of the story is that, it was a good exercise and it led me to try things that I wouldn’t normally choose to paint and discover new techniques.

In the end I was happy, my friend was happy and the clients were happy :P

Amazing showcase of two very different, but very important uses of spacial sense and white space to create different atmospheres and feels for these breathtaking pieces.

The layering in the first piece gives it so much dimension! and the dappling on the second creates such a unique and inviting texture.

Can't imagine the time and effort it takes to put these visions to campuses this large and still have them retain the feel of something small and personal.

Thank you so much for sharing your work, @alexandravart!

cannot wait to do large scale again :) thank you for appreciating always.
