About the Artwork:

“Much of my work features animals, and tigers are one of my favorite motifs. The familiarity of the patterns let me freely explore color and shape– for this piece, I decided to fully abstract my color palette.” – The Obanoth

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

I’m a painter currently living in Los Angeles. My work is defined by technique in application and dynamic color stories, usually with a focus on organic subjects such as animals or body parts.

My paintings are layers of independent shapes, stacked with precision to imply light, texture, and form. Careful color shifts and loud punches of contrasting hues result in harmony and vibration. Acrylic paint is my preferred medium, and I choose to create work on wooden surfaces, as the smoothness best lends itself to the clean and precise marks that evolve into my visual geometry. My paintings are designed to exist carefully between mechanical and fluid, representational and abstracted.

The subjects I choose to paint provide me with an opportunity to find unique ways to present things that are more or less familiar. I like exploring visual concepts of wetness, softness, and hardness without being too caught up in realism– using somewhat relatable subject matter, such as rare birds or animal eyes, gives me more freedom to play with technique.

Though I’m originally from Ohio, I currently live and create in Highland Park, CA. I’ve got a rescue rabbit that lives in my studio and watches me paint, and my time outside of work is spent cooking, making cocktails, and exploring the city.
