"Twist" 36x24" Oil on Canvas 2008 Jose Julio. Mounted 1.25 Wood Strechers
That painting have not a complex idea, but with a hard work, after i design the circles and lines with a china marker, I have had to fill triangle by triangle using a knife, but the brush in the small places. Every line of triangles have diferent gama of colors, so i have to mixt the colors carefully to keep the degrade smoothness. If u be able to see that painting with a strong light behind, u will see the shadows of the paint. That is the work, all the strokes i have to do to to create that colorful and extrange piece of art. U are in the miami area, Im in Hollywod FL, and you can visit my studio and see this by yoursel...my phone 786-488-9849...jose julio..my studio 115 S 19 Ave Hollydo Fl 33020
Jose Julio sold his first painting in 1978 in his native city of Santiago de Cuba at 15 years of age. In his neighborhood of Contramaestre he became a kind of celebrity as the much sought local painter for parties and civic events. He moved to the United States in 1991 and has been painting since, moving from en early geometric style through frankly surrealistic creations to his current phase in which abstraction gives way to individual concrete experience.
