Odilon Redon

One of my favourite artists and the biggest influence on my work are the ethereal and textured works of french artist Odilon Redon. (1800’s) I just LOVE his work!

I love the colours, the textures, the abstraction!! I love how calm these pieces seem to be although heavy with other worldly qualities that aught to make the pieces seem more abstract than they look. It is these ’embellishments’ and  loose playfulness that I love to experiment with my own work.

These are the main 3 pieces that have inspired me hugely that I thought I would share.

  1. Beautiful artist, I like also lot of this contemporary painters, Renoir, Monet and a few german like Macke, Beckmann, but my favorite, even if I am not painting even close to the way he does is Gustav Klimt. I travelled to Vienna a long time ago, there is still is a well known artist, hundred years later.
