Cindy Shaoul
"Dripping Dots - Spain" Colorful Abstract Oil Painting on Canvas

2020

$1,500

About

With layers of bright oils and whisking brush strokes, the paint is able to shine and shimmer in a very unique pattern. The artist uses gold leaf and thick textured oils, to add a very contemporary, urban feel. The way the paint blends and washes into other colors gives it a very elegant style, and thus the name "Spain" is given to compliment the emotion which is felt while viewing this piece in person. Some have said the artists "Dripping Dots" series mimics large crowds of people depicted in an abstracted way. A vividness is rendered, as we observe the figures dancing and moving, as light shines in and out, and the colors vibrate. We are focused on the simplicity of beauty in the moment as Shaoul creates a translucent but very colorful pallet with thick use of paint, evoking a result that is clean, fresh and modern. Art measures 24 x 20 in Cindy Shaoul was born in 1987 in New York. She is a visual listed American artist best known for 3 distinct styles Dripping Dots, Stepping Out, and Old Hollywood. With a Hungarian-Persian background that comes from a lineage of artists, Shaoul has matured unique expressions with her own voice and story to tell. She is the granddaughter and pupil of late world-renowned Hungarian artist Albert Sz. Nemethy, whose paintings can be found in the White House, the Kremlin in Russia, and Museums in the U.S. and Hungary. After completing her professional education at Emerson College in Boston, Shaoul later moved to Israel and Hungary to study culture and science while absorbing the energy of these new cities. In Budapest, she attended the Budai Art Institute from 2007-2009, later returning to New York City to continue her artistic education at the Art Students League, where she worked under the tutelage of Joseph Peller, Gregg Kreutz, and Tom Torak. In 2010 she met renowned street artist LA II (Angel Ortiz) who previously worked with Keith Haring in the late 1980’s. LA II strongly influenced her style with the powerful impact of 1980s hip-hop and graffiti. They began collaborating on a collection of exciting street art which later exhibited in Europe. Having built a diverse body of work since her early career ranging from portraits to colorful abstract paintings, Cindy is constantly reinventing her style working on a range of collections from Pop Culture to City Street Scenes. She is identified prominently for her colorful Dripping Dots; series that is focused on a pointillistic style, achieving simplicity of beauty in the moment, creating a translucent but very rich pallet evoking a result which is clean, fresh and modern. Her Dripping Dots series focuses on women in New York, capturing moments that are ever fleeting on the go, busy and determined. And lastly, her Old Hollywood collection that goes back in time with an Ashcan school approach depicting street scenes from the early 20th Century evoking a moody tone with thick use of paint, and a more subdued color pallet. Her whimsicality is precious, leaving much room for nostalgia in her works. For more than a decade her pieces have been a part of several important Exhibitions throughout New York City. Her paintings are part of private collections including ‘Dr. Issac Shohar’ and ‘Zion Yakabov’ in Tel Aviv, Israel, and ‘Alex Acevedo’ on Madison Ave., New York. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. Signed lower right. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
