Cindy Shaoul
"Dripping Dots - Sicily" Colorful Contemporary Oil Painting on Canvas

2016

US$1,000

About

With layers of bright oils and whisking brush strokes, the paint is able to shine and shimmer in a very unique pattern. The artist uses textured oils to add a very contemporary, urban feel. The way the paint blends and washes into other colors give it a very elegant style, and thus the name "Sicily" is given to compliment the emotion which is felt while viewing this piece in person. Some have said the artists "Dripping Dots" series mimics large crowds of people depicted in an abstracted way. A vividness is rendered, as we observe the figures dancing and moving, as light shines in and out, and the colors vibrate. This style is focused on the simplicity of beauty at the moment the artist creates a translucent but very colorful and evoking pallet which results in a clean, fresh and modern piece. Art measures 20 x 16 in Cindy Shaoul was born in 1987 in New York. She is a visual listed American artist best known for her “Dripping Dots" series. Formally trained, Shaoul also paints impressionistic street scenes and portraits. With a Hungarian-Persian background that comes from a lineage of artists, Shaoul has matured unique expressions with her own voice and story to tell. After completing her professional education at Emerson College in Boston, she later moved to Israel and Hungary to study culture and science while absorbing the energy of these new cities. In Budapest, she attended the Budai Art Institute from 2007-2009, later returning to New York City to continue her artistic education at the Art Students League, where she worked under the tutelage of Joseph Peller, Gregg Kreutz, and Tom Torak. In 2010 she met renowned street artist LA II (Angel Ortiz) who previously worked with Keith Haring in the late 1980s. LA II strongly influenced her style with the powerful impact of 1980s hip-hop and graffiti. They began collaborating on a collection of exciting street art which later exhibited in Europe. Having built a diverse body of work since her early career ranging from portraits to colorful abstract paintings, Cindy is constantly reinventing her style working on a range of collections from Pop Culture to City Street Scenes. She is identified prominently for her colorful "Dripping Dots" series that is focused on a pointillistic style, achieving simplicity of beauty at the moment, creating a translucent but very rich pallet evoking a result which is clean, fresh and modern. Some have said the artists "Dripping Dots" series mimics large crowds of people depicted in an abstracted way. A vividness is rendered, as we observe the figures dancing and moving, as light shines in and out, and the colors vibrate. Her academic background first led her to paint realistic portraits and scenes from the street but the pieces that Shaoul is most passionate about are her “Dripping Dots”. This latest series explores an accidental technique which the artist has brought to life. From the leftover paint of her pallet, Shaoul would paint circles to clean her brushes on to another canvas, just not to waste paint. These non-geometric shapes soon became part of a motif that was expanding all over the canvas. This eventually evolved into a discovery of an abstract and a very decorative contemporary style, completely new to her, and very much appreciated by her friends and teachers. The academic skills she honed from school gave her the capacity to perfectly manage the use of light and shadow in these enchanting paintings. Further influenced by the seasons and her trips abroad, the choice of the colors reflect the mood of the artist in a magnificent way. The paintings inspired by the warm seasons are more luminous and full of pop colors that make the canvas flash out of the wall. Shaoul is active in New York and abroad, working diligently on expanding her technique and adding new and exciting elements to her work. Still passionate about portraiture and street scenes, she has a hunger for both capturing reality in her own style, and creating colorfully expansive pallets for her “Dripping Dots”.
