Picasso said that “The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”.
We couldn’t agree more; we can get so caught up in our day to day lives that we sometimes need to get away from it all and find art to be a perfect form of escape. Art allows our minds and imaginations to wonder and go wild. It gives us inspiration and new ideas.
Last weekend we visited It is and it isn’t, an exhibit by American artist Nick Kuszyk at Saga, a modern art gallery in Jaffa. Kuszyk, aka RRobots, became well known for his colorful robot-themed street art which has now become a gorgeous part of New York City’s urban landscape.
While we loved Kuszyk’s robots and other adorable creatures, we were really taken with the geometric and architectural turn his art has taken.
We loved the colors the artist uses in his work and how the graphic qualities made the paintings look three dimensional.
All this was especially beautiful and powerful when set against the gallery’s heavy exposed concrete architectural style.
We’d love to see your favorite artists and styles, share them on our facebook page!
