Big Eye Art
Medium: Acrylic Paintings
The 1950's saw the birth of a new art movement called "Big Eye" Art. These doll like paintings with big sad eyes of the 50's, has now undergone a huge revival and now they are transformed into more modern new age subjects like fairies, mermaids & magical animals to the darker world of witches, vampires & gothic ladies. I get my inspiration from artists, such as Jasmine Becket-Griffith & Margaret Keane. Margaret's amazing story was told in the movie, "Big Eyes". Also check out the book "Big Eye Art", Resurrected & Transformed by Blondie Blythe & foreword by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I use a child like style painting, which gives it a more macabre, eerie, whimsical atmosphere. "Eyes are the window to your soul".
