Artist of the moment… Freddy Chandra…

this is an artist I have been seeing in many home decorating magazines. Known for his use of color with resin panels his large pieces really give life to the large rooms they occupy. This artist was born in 1979 in Indonesia but now makes his home in the Bay area and is turning heads in the art world. His works are mainly large wall installations. and check out his past exhibition titled Listening Sequence. His works are an emotional and color response to certain sounds and meditations. He received a MFA from Mills College in Oakland, California. He is on the visiting artists list at the school and makes his home in Oakland California. He has also done installations in the past that feature light, sound, and video.

Take some time to research his work and see some similarities between he and Elsworth Kelly, both use bold dramatic bright color to full effect.

keep painting!
