Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This painting was first inspired by the Tall Trees in Victoria, Australia which has evolved into a more abstract piece. The colors are so inviting, you will feel encouraged to inspect further. The plant shapes are familiar and noticeable but the piece still remains so abstract that your mind feels free to wander.
I have used a drawing method of scratching back to reveal complementary blue and green undertones in the background paint layers. Thick acrylic paint is used to achieve the textures showing the history of the paint application and mark making; the way you can see through to the under painting where I have scratched creates an overlapping pattern with a beautiful rhythm of colors and textures.

- Professionally framed in Victorian Ash float frame, ready to hang.
- It comes with string/wire on the back to hang the artwork.
- The work is varnished for protection front and sides.
- Signed at the back with my name, date, and artwork title.
- In situ photo not to scale

Artist Profile

Born: 1991

Hometown: Melbourne

Based in: Melbourne

Joseph Villanueva is a sgraffito abstract impressionist artist based in Melbourne, working primarily in acrylics. His technique involves scratching through a layer of still-wet paint to reveal complementary colours underneath.

He has a background in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. His paintings are inspired by his surroundings and the sensation of colors and textures. He enjoys landscapes in bloom, wonderous skies, garden vistas in explosions of flowers, and bright colors. Interiors are also a favorite subject inspiration from his plant collections at home. His palette of colors is often bright and optimistic, which echoes free-flowing linework dancing over the surface. Painting may seem totally abstract at first, but soon you'll realize the compositions are grounded in figurations and structural elements describing the flora, landscape, and bursting sky.

The elements of land, sky, and nature overlap each other in the painting. His technique is layered with consideration to background colors and washes, which eventually are uncovered in the final piece. He draws freehand over the wet paint with virtuosity and imaginative flare from memory - sometimes from observation and references.
