My first painting of 2015 (and 4 more to follow) is the one shown, as an abstract-style with Earthtones and organic forms. No sketch or linework on canvas was done, save for some routine mental composition that’s necessary, even for this type of work.
Here’s the art for the new Vallenfyre 7″, “The Last of Our Kind“, which will be available during the Decibel Magazine U.S. tour this Spring supporting At The Gates, Converge, and Pallbearer. This new design I drew keeps the grimness of their Splinters LP, while paying homage to those before them such as Axegrinder and Hellhammer, presented in the classic and Spartan flat graphic style of long ago. Musically, expect nothing less than two powder-burned and and shrapnel-torn broadsides from these talented veterans.
My new store is open! Original paintings and prints available, as well as pages from my sketchbooks and ready-to-go art for commercial use. I’m really excited to offer a more personal connection with people who might want some of my work. I don’t keep stock on hand, so please allow for manufacture and delivery time with art prints. Thanks so much!
Reflective: A Series in Metallics are recent paintings by Brian D’Agosta
Reflective is a collection of works unified in technique and tone, assembled with content from seemingly opposite origins. The title of this installation refers to the metallic silvers and bronzes used throughout, giving the pieces motion when viewed at different angles. The forms are a miasma of calligraphic script, Art Nouveau, graffiti, science fiction and punk aesthetics.
I’m interested in working on new projects, or releasing some of my existing works for use on albums, apparel, film, packaging, etc. My media is acrylic paint, pen & ink, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc., depending on final deliverables. I do require a deposit up front for new clients, with working terms tailored per project. Thanks!
