Sunset on Whitecross by Evi Antonio is an original work on paper. Photography, digital printing, computer manipulation and painting techniques are all used to create this highly technical piece.
Starting with a giclee print, this is then painted with details which are varnished. Creating depth and definition. Evi Antonio’s work is a complex mix of overlaid imaginary. With intricate repeat patterns of nature and street decay and Sunset on Whitecross, is no exception.
With a delicate mix of urban destruction and the fragile beauty of butterflies. Sunset on Whitecross is a perfect example of Antonio’s style.
Evi says of Sunset on Whitecross and her other work.
“I seek out moments that occur in my present urban setting. Where evolving abstract beauty, deconstruction and decay collide. In nature, I see infinite patterns, symmetry, intricate and perfect. On the streets, I see something similar emerging from unexpected beauty on the streets as I walk around London. I’d like to take the viewer on my journey where my love for nature and urban landscape collide and combine in harmony.”
After winning the It’s Art Call 2019, London Arts competition. Which Runway Gallery’s director Daniel Syrett was a judge. Evi became a new addition to our roster of Runway artists,
