I love to come across artists who take a traditional subject matter such as a still life, a landscape – or in this case – a nude and take it to a new and exciting place. LA artist Sarah Awad does exactly that. Her paintings are bright and vibrant and seem to be a world removed from the more subdued figurative work we normally see.
Her large-scale paintings explore form and color with tremendious confidence and her imagery is alluring, often verging on the near-abstract. I love how she captures the female form with luscious color and rambunctious energy and her work seems to hark back to the paintings of old yet it still feels very contemporary and modern. If you’re looking to brighten up your day then you could do far worse than visit Awad’s site and take a look at the wonderful work she has been creating.
