About the Artwork:
"Colorful Odyssey: Transmuting the Riviera's Realistic Charm into a Whirlwind of Abstract Emotion"
In my journey from realism to abstraction, I've transformed the beauty of the Riviera into a cascade of emotions, impressions, and experiences that resonate with the spontaneity and vitality of life."
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.
“Andrew Manaylo, a celebrated contemporary artist, has breathed life into abstract art through his series "Côte d'Azur". Once a realist, Manaylo has evolved his style akin to a metamorphosis, embracing the freedom of the abstract to capture the soulful essence of the world's beauty. Inspired by the vibrant allure of the French-Italian Riviera, his paintings, strikingly devoid of frames, radiate vitality, and embody a well-aged Italian espresso - bold, spontaneous, and full of life. These artworks, reminiscent of a riveting Netflix series, are impossible to ignore, each stroke a testimony to Manaylo's personal journey. His art is a feast for the senses, offering a tantalizing mix of emotions, impressions, and joy. In transforming the mundanity of realism into an exhilarating ride of abstract, Manaylo has truly revolutionized the realm of fine art. His spontaneous and sensual style, characterized by the dance of brush, hand, and paint, makes each piece an authentic slice of life, making his paintings for sale an attractive prospect for collectors, patrons, and those with a keen eye for interior design. Manaylo's paintings not only encapsulate the essence of the Mediterranean's charm but also reaffirm the significance of the appreciator in the creative process. His journey reiterates the joy of letting go of the superfluous, underscoring the value of authenticity in contemporary art.”
