A new pop up art show by Asaf Amario on Sunday, September 22 in North Hollywood, CA! The exhibition features his new series, Idyll – a collection of 50+ acrylic paintings.
Asaf Amario is a Los Angeles-based visual artist known for his realistic portraiture. In his series Idyll, he combines his studies of realism with playful painting techniques in order to craft beautiful and stirring images. The Idyll art exhibition will treat visitors to realistic details, colorful accents and blissful finishes in pictures that are sure to surprise the eye and evoke discussions.
“It actually started with an experiment that evolved to this series of paintings,” Asaf explains. “The series includes over 50 paintings, which brings fantastic and unexpected connections. Some of them show chaos with small realistic elements, others present a small magical situation with things that in reality would never come together. Each painting represents a universe full of inspiration taken from the animal kingdom, the lessons and innocence of childhood. They are surrealist paintings painted in a realistic and whimsical approach, it almost feels like they are floating in space.”
“I am originally from Israel, where I began my artistic education as a child. I immigrated to Los Angeles in my early 20s, to be able to paint for a living,” says Asaf. “I was very lucky to be mentored by the great artist Mark Westermoe at his former art school, Associates in Art. I am currently the CEO of Master Custom Paintings, an elite painting company based in North Hollywood. I spend most of my days in NoHo, and it felt like the right place to have a show. A good friend presented me with the opportunity to create a pop-up show at his place, and I jumped on the opportunity. The art scene over here is amazing and I feel very lucky to be part of such community.“
