Bright, Experimental Artworks by Eduardo Infante

Eduardo Infante is a mixed media artist from Spain. Using a variety of types of paint as well as other materials, he creates bright, experimental artworks that combine figure-making with splashy abstraction.

In many of his works, Infante uses a very loose, almost naïve style, utilizing seemingly disjointed selection of lines and marks to build up a painted area. I find that the style that the artist uses really lends itself to interpretation as figurative, even if a work seems decidedly abstract at first glance. Infante frequently combines two or more media in a single work, including oils, acrylics, pastel, ink and more.

 

In certain works Infante also plays with installation, creating tiny, sketched works that sit alongside a larger finished piece in the final documentation of the work. The smaller pieces often seem to act as a distillation of the imagery in the larger piece, reinforcing Infante’s intention and concept.
