Original artworks by renowned contemporary expressionist Franck de las Mercedes.
Growing up in New York City, I was exposed to the urban colors and
imagery of the city. My surroundings and a fascination with the abstract
expressionism movement played a major role in me becoming an artist. I
approach the surface as an art journal page in which I fuse
semi-abstract imagery, lines, scribbles and abstract text applied with
palette knives and acrylic markers. Bright colors and raw textures are
an essential element in of my work, resulting in frenetic paintings with
energetic abstractions bursting with color.
