Today I discovered an artist by the name of Johnathan Saiz. His paintings are geometric, like the work I’ve been doing lately, and are inspired by Versailles. I find his work interesting because the abstraction comes from his own perspective of finding common themes in history. His splicing of historical images gives a more modern spin on something old. I’m especially liking how he incorporates the background with the shape without having the “floating object” effect.
