Flat, Bright Paintings by Jeffrey Fine
Our featured artist today is Jeffrey Fine. Jeffrey’s flat, bright paintings often feature spiritual, animal or otherwise anthropomorphic forms. Their simplistic style is reminiscent of ancient paintings from various cultures.
Bright colours and repetitive patterns factor heavily in Jeffrey’s works. In many instances, dark figures appear layered over of lines of pattern reminiscent of the way patterns would appear on carpets or in wallpaper. His airbrush paintings take this style and translate it into a graffiti-like aesthetic with the slightly blurred edges of spray painted forms.
I really like Jeffrey’s city paintings, in which the artist emulates the hustle and bustle of large urban centres with frenetic lines and colour. Buildings and roads are created with basic shapes in bright, simple hues. Often these paintings are designed in a grid style, reflecting city blocks and infrastructure.
