Playing with Fire: Making a Mark with David Sena

June 30, 2010, 12:56 pm  Posted by Lark

Part of actively crafting a creative life is seeking inspiration from those who can help open your eyes (and perhaps even your mind) to the possibilities, both in style and in process. Right now I’m particularly fixated on the work of David Sena. After encountering his artwork, I had one of those moments that left me feeling both jealous and respectful all at once. In a spirit of true artistic alchemy David uses fire, fireworks and gunpowder to burn patterns, lines and shapes on paper. The results are truly elegant and surprising. In addition to exploring works on paper, he is also an amazing tattoo artist. Talk about a multidisciplinary body of work! You have been warned: you might find yourself losing sense of time while perusing senaspace, or even end up wanting a tattoo (or another tattoo in my case).

    Unquestionably believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the web the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other people consider issues that they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

    As a Newbie, I am always searching online for articles that can be of assistance to me. Thank you
