|JOSE MANUEL SALAS|
- A Mixed Technique which involves various types of tools to achieve this style such as Conté crayons(pencils), graphite, watercolors, temperas, gouaches, acrylics, inks. In many of his art work that he has applied the mixed techniques are based on stain painting , texture, glazes, scratches, etc. , which allows him to highlight figures in a pure and informal expressionism. The figures in his paintings are as if they were taken out of abstract backgrounds or as if they were paused in time and space.
- Acrylics/ Oils—Even though, these are traditional techniques, Mr. Salas always manages to give it his personal touch where he depicts the figurative or abstract aspect of the art. The art piece that he creates successfully manifests expressions or informal art, where it intentionally loses the detail and as a result highlights the multiple formats such as: lighting, shadows, glazes, texture, stain painting. Such technique allows the art work to appear to pause in time and space, allowing the explosion of creativity and expression for his art work.
