About the artwork Geometric Redux Study after Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks

Hopper is one of my favorite North American artists. The loneliness in Hopper's paintings is almost palpable. Even characters represented side by side are isolated souls dealing with their issues.

The depressed, anxious, and self-absorbed people, portrayed by Hopper at the beginning of the last century, have a high similarity to those we find today. The difference is that now, the silent people in restaurants, public transportation, and bedrooms are staring at their smartphones, socializing only through social media, with their faces reflected by blue screens.

For me, Hopper created a timeless portrait of loneliness and isolation. Nighthawks represent this mood very well, and that's why I chose this artwork to pay homage to this great artist with a geometric redux.

About the artist Andre Brik

Andre Brik was born in Curitiba, Brazil in 1972. Architect, illustrator, and art director, he also studied typography and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and at Parsons School of Design in New York.

In his works, you can find some of the 1920’s Plakatstil graphic style and polish posters with their clean lines and flat contrasting background colors, their visual puns and wit, and subtle irony. There is also nonsense, humor, counterculture, dada, surrealism, and punk rock. The ideas are born from the observation of the elements of everyday objects. Then the artist begins a long process of sketching to deconstruct and recombine shapes, colors, and meanings. Finally, a careful selection of outcoming ideas is chosen to be digitally developed, painted, and finished as a graphic art illustration.
