Whether she’s dripping black paint onto canvas or carefully placing watercolors on a Moleskin page, one thing is certain, artist Agnes-Cecile (aka Silvia Pelissero) knows how to create evocative works of art. It’s been over a year since we took a look at her figurative illustrations and, since then, the artist has been on a tear, creating incredibly powerful pieces.
Today, instead of highlighting her new watercolor paintings, we take a look at her black dripping paint portraits. The 21-year-old artist just put up a new video that shows the making of Waiting, the piece immediately below. Watch as she masterfully creates the piece using a combination of black enamel paint, which she drips and flips off her paintbrush, and charcoal, which she carefully places and then smears with her fingertips. Love her technique.
