At first glance, it`s nearly impossible to tell if the colorful geometries are digitally inserted, or rather artfully painted on canvas. The answer to the
optical illussion is the latter -argentinian artist Nicolas Longo uses acrylic paint on canvas or wood to render abstract artworks that are juxtaposed
against the most classical and traditional artistic techniques.
Longo`s paintings seem like portals to a digital world. Recalling the geometric abstraction of Frank Stella, the bold, colorful pieces sharply contrast
his serene personality: “My thinking is this: in an increasingly complex and competitive society, there is impassioned need for artistic respite.
Simplicity, it has been said, is the essence of beauty”
Each painting demandas more than 300 hours, 3 different softwares, 100 mts of tape, and more than 60 fl.oz of paint.
