About Vivid Blue No 36
Vivid, deep blue and abstract…this compelling acrylic and mixed media piece by Ivo Stoyanov illustrates his masterful use of expressive form, colour and texture. The Canadian artist is known for creating intensely dynamic paintings inspired by nature and re-interpreted in uniquely complex compositions. Stoyanov uses a combination of acrylic paints, marble dust, pigments and cold wax to add a rich visual texture and energy to his work. Art Critic Donald Bracket calls Stoyanov’s work, ‘landscapes of the mind.’ One of a series.
“The working process focuses on applying layers of various colours and textures over incised and drawn marks, looking for both a spontaneous and informed image – that place where surprise and intention meet.” Ivo Stoyanov
