About the artwork Geometric Redux Study after Klimt’s The Kiss

For the geometric redux reinterpretation homage series I start observing the masterpiece painting in detail: the palette of colors used, the
contrasts between light and shadow, the shades and the shapes.

Then I sketch a lot, deconstructing the original composition in basic shapes and primary colors. I also use a support grid, a "flexible template" that helps me to find the simplification possibilities without limiting the creativity. Within this grid, I search for alignments, patterns, stylizations, color reductions and shapes up to a maximum point of formal simplification, just a step before the original work can't be recognized.

And then I put the "puzzle" pieces together on the computer, fitting shapes and overlapping transparent gradients as in a vectorial “vellatura” so I can recreate the original artwork in my style.

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.
