Go straight to the store with the button below if you already know the heart that belongs to you. Or you can continue reading to learn what inspired the creation of the butterfly art in this collection.
The very first art piece from this butterfly art series was “Max The Butterfly No. 2”. Creatively the artworks are done through traditional mediums such as painting and drawing.
I am still uncertain as to why I decided to call the artwork “Max The Butterfly”, but at the time I probably thought it had a ring to it. Sort of like a catchy phrase.
Since I created the first butterfly painting, I have continued to develop butterfly drawings and more butterfly paintings. The red background is something I chose to apply to the series because of Vincent Van Gogh Blue period and Picasso’s Rose period.
Each of these artists recreated them chromatic art series that inspired the world of art. Their works also left a dent in art’s history. What we study, explore, and practice as visual artists come from inspiration of these two great and household names.
Pablo Picasso the master of cubism and Vincent Van Gogh the most post-impressionist painters to have ever live changed the way people perceive art. Why would any artist not desire to be like these two great artists?
My butterfly paintings and drawings were inspired by these masters. I think it’s important for every artist to look up to the masters in art and to try some of the things they did creatively. However, staying original and adding your own flavor to the artwork you create is very important as an artist. I don’t believe it is good to copy people’s works.
The butterfly like the octopus is a very symbolic creature. In an earlier art post I share an octopus drawing I created entitled the “Royal Octopus”. Both of these creatures share a similarity in their symbolism; they are both representations of time.
While working under an artist who created sculptures of butterflies I learned that the butterfly represented Transition and growth. The butterfly represents these two things because of its metamorphosis.
Some of the other things the butterfly represents in its meanings are listed below.
In this next butterfly painting I added some yellow and white paint to the background of the artwork. This is also a most detailed artwork because with this painting I drew more lines and implied a lot more movement in the art piece.
Because of the white and yellow in the piece, it created a more diverse artwork. I wanted the colors in the back of the line artwork to pop out a little bit and there for I added green to the palette.
The third piece from the butterfly paintings “Metamorphosis of Life” was a continuation of the second painting. However, the contrast in color for the background of this butterfly painting was the accent of blue and green colors.
Also in the artwork there are more black shapes and a heavier line weight the butterfly carries. Personally this is probably my favorite from the butterfly paintings I have created.
All of them have been sold because of this; however prints are available on Fine Art America And Pixels. If interested in commissioning an original piece like these send me an email or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
When I create the paintings I normally paint them on a 36 x 24 inch stretched canvas and it can take 2-3 weeks to complete.
Lastly the fourth artwork from the butterfly paintings is “Roger The Butterfly”. This piece is also heavy in its line weight. The background is just red with no additional colors may seem flat, but because of the heavy contrast in the artwork I believe it’s mysterious.
I believe In exploring and never ceasing to create art as an artist. Challenging myself to create a variety of art is something I push myself to do. In return I’ve grown a lot over a short period of time because I am not afraid of trying different art styles and experimenting with different mediums of traditional art.
You can also brose through the fashion art collection or the human heart artworks I've also created. If you love high heels you will love the fashion series and if you have experience working in the medical field or love poetry you will find the hearts metaphorical.
