Artist Cristo del Risco

...I am a Cuban artist living in Prague....my paiting is influenced by urban art, graffiti, and artists such as Jean - Michel Basquiat, or Cy Twombly.

SACRED LOVE, 100cm X 100cm, MIXED MEDIA ON CANVAS

..I use acrylics, spray paint, oil pastels, and on smaller works, such as 40 cm X 40 cm, I work with my own drawings made in the computer, which i later print, and naive drawings done with acrylic markers...on my bigger works, such as 100cm X 100cm, I have much freedom, so the paintings are filled with various elements, almost looking chaotic, and art brut like...in the year 2000, my friends bought me a book of Basquiat, which, as I wrote before, is one of my biggest influences on my lates work...

BOOM FOR REAL, 80cm X 80cm, MIXED MEDIA ON CANVAS

I try no to copy his style, but take certain elements, and try to make up my own language with my paintings...I worked with a similar style, after i returned to Prague, but then I started working more with collage, and left the Basquiat style behind...as I gave it a break, is one of the styles I enjoy the most, and would like to continue to develop in this direction...
