Yago Hortal’s Candy-Colored Abstract Acrylic Paintings

Yago Hortal’s paintings look like beautiful, magnified brushstrokes at first glance.

Hortal’s neon-colored artwork might look good enough to eat (and appear as if they were created using digital means, too), but they were actually made using acrylic paint on linen. What’s also interesting about the paintings’ appearance is that it doesn’t look flat at all, with the strokes and splatters looking as if they’re spilling over beyond the limits of the canvass. The paintings below were among those done by Hortal in 2012.

Hortal is a Berlin-based Spanish artist who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Barcelona. He’s held seven solo exhibitions as of this writing in Barcelona and Mallorca in Spain, as well as in Berlin and New York. Hortal has also been part of numerous group shows and, in 2012, was an artist-in-residence at Mallorca’s Centre Cultural Andratx.

All information in this article were sourced from Yago Hortal’s website via Hi-Fructose. You may also find in the artist’s website similar work done in 2011 and earlier.
