Santiago, Chile is a revelation for street art lovers. Such neighborhood as Barrio Bellavista can entertain your eye with more than 500 wall murals. We just got on the bicycles, and had a wonderful day out studying different masters styles and themes. That was fun.
With Prayers for Nepal…
The amount of wires and cables on the streets of Kathmandu can complete only with some Indian cities. They took over the skies and created their own very chaotic dark design. They draw my attention by creating the nests, or a net pattern against the houses or skies. This outdated urban necessity is still there, and you just have to unleash your imagination and guess how many times the Nepali might have the power shortage due to those dangerous “Medusas”.
Streets shots are essential for me when I travel to a new destination in the world. People are different and the same everywhere. I love to take the pictures of the “unpolished” people, the real people in their natural environment. All characters are unique and special for me. I think I can create a little story based on each picture.
Well, what an artist needs for inspiration? How many and what quality objects does he needs? What set of the expensive paints and brushes are required? I think, sometimes creativity arise from a boredom. Here I had a plastic water bottle and my camera on me. I can state that this water bottle was half full for me. I manipulated the exposure, definition and temperature on these images to get my abstract painting.
Initially, I dedicated this blog to my travel photography, however as time was passing by I realized that all my interests in life are connected, interchangeable and overlapping. My major in school was Textile Design for a reason: I always was hunting for colors and textures, for new patterns and unique folk designs. I think these interests got projected onto my photography. Photography gave me the opportunity to capture and later on analyze much wider variety of designs and form representations. I found a lot of inspiration in the designs I collected around the word and I try to implement them in my original artwork. I’ll be happy if some of you will find the connections or make your own.
