The artists who shaped my creative journey
Updated: Mar 16
Hello hello, friend!
Some of you asked me, who my biggest art influences are. And I decided to write a blog post about it. Enjoy it!
As an artist, I'm constantly drawing inspiration from the world around us. Whether it's from nature, our experiences, or the work of other artists, inspiration can come in many forms. In this blog post, I want to take a closer look at the artists who have influenced my creative journey and helped shape the artist I am today, including the one and only Peter Max.
German-American artist Peter Max's iconic psychedelic artwork captured the spirit of the 1960s and has continued to inspire generations of artists since. His bold use of color, patterns and pop culture references have all played a role in shaping my own artistic style.
The first time I saw one of his paintings, I was struck by how he combined colors and elements. It showed me that art doesn't have to be constrained by traditional boundaries and that creativity can come from unexpected places.
Of course, Max is just one of many artists who have influenced my journey. From the bold brushstrokes of Van Gogh to the vibrant colors of Frida Kahlo, each artist has left their mark on me in different ways. Their unique perspectives, techniques, and styles have helped inform my artistic voice.
I remember the first time I saw a painting by Monet. The way he captured the light and color of his surroundings in his impressionistic style was unlike anything I had ever seen before. It sparked my curiosity to explore the world around me and try to capture its beauty in my work.
Similarly, the surrealist work of Salvador Dali opened up a whole new world of creative possibilities for me. His ability to create dreamlike worlds that challenged reality inspired me to push the boundaries of my own imagination and experiment with different techniques and mediums.
But it's not just the famous artists that have influenced me. My fellow artists, friends, and family have all played a role in shaping my creative journey. Their support, feedback, and encouragement have helped me to grow and develop as an artist.
Looking back on my journey so far, I see how each artist and experience has helped to shape my artistic voice. I am grateful for the inspiration and guidance of these creative minds, and I look forward to continuing to explore new perspectives and techniques in my own work.
