First Friday Art Walk – June 2019
Discover Art Downtown with our Artist Reception at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday June 7th from 5pm to 8pm. View the intricate works by returning artist, Pradeep Bangalore during the First Friday Art Walk.
Pradeep’s interest in computer graphics and animation influenced him to learn 3-D computer modeling, shifting his creativity to constructing fine art utilizing a blend of cutting edge laser and computer graphics. He calls this process “Lasered Layers”. The 3-D artwork consists of painstakingly assembled multiple layers of intricately laser-cut sheets of paper.
His earlier pursuits included a variety of mediums such as color pencils, oil pastels, water colors, oil colors & clay modeling influenced by the rich variety of traditional cultural art of south India.
Pradeep’s art is inspired from images and patterns in nature which are transformed into black and white sketches on paper which are scanned and reduced to 2-D vector art. Then cut on acid free card stock using a fine laser beam. The laser cutting process adds dimension and shading of the edges. The texture of paper and airbrushing adds beauty and color.
