Colour Zoetrope over eyes - this colourful art is a framed print canvas blending classical and modern styles to create a graffiti art that's entirely new. A close-up of a pair of big, thoughtful brown eyes in a pale face are painted in a renaissance style, complete with a cracked oil paint effect. Yet this classical artwork has been daubed with brightly coloured paint, taking the image into a whole new dimension.
Artist Chad Wys describes these slashes of paint as a zoetrope - describing a spinning cylinder that was the forerunner of animation and movie making. As we look through the zoetrope, how do our feelings and experience of the image change? Chad is well known for his work in juxtaposing contrasting styles. He enjoys challenging the concept of what we find beautiful and creating art with a sense of fun, but at the same time making that fun meaningful.
This framed eye art canvas will work brilliantly as part of a gallery wall, or alone as a high impact abstract wall art canvas. As a focal point for your room, it acts as both a piece to be contemplated and a source of bright colour and energy for any space. Colour Zoetrope over eyes is available on framed canvas in a range of sizes from miniature to large, you can choose the perfect dimensions for your wall.
