Prismatic Portraits by Lui Ferreyra Form a Collision of Geometry and Color
Denver-based artist Lui Ferreyra (previously) has spent the last decade honing a technique that portrays faces, hands, and landscapes as dense fields of geometric color. While evoking a tone that clearly references the digital age, Ferreyra also draws inspiration from artists like Chuck Close and Egon Schiele who famously worked with aspects of pointillism and geometry. Seen here are a collection of drawings and sketches, but he utilizes a similar fragmentary style for oil paintings as well. You can follow Ferreyra on Instagram and see more of his work at William Havu Gallery.
