Eime – Stencil Art vs. Abstract Painting

Modern Urban Art | A few days ago i stumbled upon works of an urban artist I haven’t seen before, what literally spoken is not that unusual, but this time my mouth formed a smile and my brain told me that these artworks are rather new, fresh and – what’s all the more important – unique.

Portuguese street artist Eime (don’t mix him up with Eine!) creates inspiring painting combining stencil-techniques and abstract painting elements! For me it’s always fantastic to see street artists conquering borders and creating is that way new, outstanding expressions. For the Taildrop Graffiti Jam 2011, Eime’s creative process was documented, which makes it for example possible to see, that he doesn’t spray-paints his stencils, but – as some of you know as color by numbers – paints all the different tones by hand with a brush…

I for one like the resulting combination of the detailed stencil work and the plain, abstract forms! For more info about Eime and his works, check his photo-stream on Flickr or visit his website!
