Franck de las Mercedes

ArtistUSA

  • East Of Broadway artwork by Franck de las Mercedes - art listed for sale on Artplode

About Artist:

Franck de las Mercedes lives and works in New York City.  His multifaceted body of work includes painting, collage, drawing, photography and writing. His paintings combine abstract figuration, journal entry, and hieroglyphic-like text, in energetic abstractions bursting with color. Franck’s personal history, childhood memories and upbringing are extracted and combined with fragments of current events, family dynamics and books. Exploring the contrast between memory and present-day cultural context, Franck creates scenes of an emotionally charged urban landscape.

About Artwork:

This piece is inspired by nature in urban spaces and Upper Manhattan. Growing up in New York City, I was exposed to the urban colors and imagery of the city. My surroundings and a fascination with the abstract expressionism movement played a major role in me becoming an artist. I approach the surface as an art journal page in which I fuse semi-abstract imagery, lines, scribbles and abstract text applied with palette knives and acrylic markers. Bright colors and raw textures are an essential element in of my work, resulting in frenetic paintings with energetic abstractions bursting with color.
