Carlos Pardi - Art

Carlos Pardi

I love everything about Kitsch. That way of mixing everything with an apparent and random nonsense creating chaos seems great to me, and it has also helped me to make my works and define myself, it has to achieve the exact moment and the perfect composition, within the chaos, and without apparent sense .

Born in Venezuela but currently living in Miami, USA. Studied and graduated in Venezuela with a major in both Civil Engineering and Graphic Arts studies and currently restarting my art journey with a lot of passion and knowledge.

My creative process began when I was a graphic arts student, searching for my identity and trying to define my artistic personality. Towards what I learned in the classes: Landscaping, Figurative Art, etc, but none of this excited me or made me feel that I was on the right track.

I spend a lot of time realizing that what I call “Intuitive Abstract Art” was my path. And I say that it is intuitive because I keep doing and doing until my sight tells me “this is it.” Without any formula or rule. As easy as it sounds. Just enjoying it. I start without any prior idea to draw and capture colors, by trial and error, until I find a composition that hooks me, that totally satisfies me. I think if I try to create the same work 2 times, I will not succeed. It is like a photograph, it is never the same in time.

Since I was a child I was attracted to colors. Pop art inspired me and continues to do so today. Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Keith Haring, etc., are my main influences.

 

I’m a fan of color. Of the contrasts. When I start working on my art, I look for my sources of inspiration in everything around me. I look for color in the things closest to me. My color palettes can come from a magazine, a food container, or from TV. I am constantly thinking, searching and imagining the color for my works.

 

From there, my trial and error process begins until I get what I’m looking for. Until I get to the composition that makes me fall in love and I can’t stop looking. There I say “This is”.
