About the artwork Zen and the Art of Making Art
This tessellation artwork is my tribute to these beautiful ancient cultures that have given me a life-changing toolbox.
To represent my gratitude, I chose the lotus flower for its meaning and symbolism in many Eastern Cultures.
Their analogy is simple and perfect (as always)
For them, the lotus represents growth, evolution, and enlightenment because it shows that something beautiful can flourish even with its roots latched in dark muddy waters.
To me, this has been a constant reinvigorating open mind epiphany.
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.
