These beautiful birds were painted by Frank Gonzales, an artist living and working in Tempe, Arizona.
Working mainly in acrylics, Frank takes his inspiration from old masters and adds a contemporary feel with influence from innovations in graphic design. He doesn’t think much about his compositions beforehand and enjoys the spontaneity of starting with a single image or colour as a jump point for the rest of the painting.
He says, “My various marks and color glitches mimic this uncertainty resulting in a visual stillness and movement.”
