As much as I love some graffiti, I’m not very familiar with the scene and tend not to blog much about it. However as I was looking through Marco Migani‘s great handmade collages, his spray-based art also struck a chord. By combining great colors, lines and geometric shapes, Marco’s spray art adds a subtle but captivating dimension to rather bland urban landscapes.

Paintings by Mat Jones

Mat blends beautiful acrylic and spray paint colors together to create these  abstract shapes. He describes the process people should go through while seeing his work, and as with many abstract artworks that’s exactly what I went through. At first I stayed mesmerized by the pure aesthetics of these pieces, and then I began to associate shapes with meanings and accord more than aesthetic importance to each piece.

This is Mat’s objective, as he states :

With the artist’s attempt to express something meaningless, the viewer is allowed to have an active viewing experience in which the meaning is left up to their own interpretation.
