Studio Hoodoo: The Art Portfolio of Crystal DiPietro
Studio Hoodoo is the art studio of Crystal DiPietro, an artist based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Crystal’s art portfolio is currently packed with vibrant landscapes inspired by the Nevada region, and the artist’s works have been exhibited throughout the United States.
I really enjoy the graphic, colourful aesthetic that Crystal employs in her paintings. Rather than soft blending across the canvas, the artist favours a style that incorporates flattened planes of colour and heavy outlines to create an almost pop-art-esque impression of a scene. This isn’t to say that the works don’t capture realistic detail -- quite the opposite. Crystal’s paintings do a beautiful job of balancing artistic license and an eye for natural detail.
Elsewhere in her portfolio, Crystal captures subject matter including cityscapes, plein air work, and human figures. In all these works, the artist adapts her unique style to suit the contours and colours of whatever the work features.
