“The Grey Between“, 24×36, acrylic on canvas. This was an evolved, difficult piece for me to do, both in using new techniques and content. The grey sometimes being a body for hungry crows, but more metaphorically as a barrier, cloud, or ash.
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.
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.
