Street are is interactive and suggestive in ways that stem out from the axis of regular art forms. Borondo is an artist out of Spain who practices the art of roughly painted yet classically rendered street paintings. Borondo’s techniques appear to seem classical while the overall results of his work are stunningly contemporary and boast a theme of grunge styling.
We have been following quite a number of talented street artists in the recent past on PelFusion, taking special interest in documenting their fascinating working style that forever leaves its mark on physical society. Borondo is one such gifted art maker, transforming the art of site-based creative street painting into a contemporary means of classical expression.
Borondo’s street art is massively large scale with a primary subject of human figures, often incorporating the presence of nude females. This artist’s artistic style is such that he interesting incorporates the human figures into the architecture of the surface he paints on, rendering it an accurate and amazing representation and complement of the structure itself. We have come to find that each painting Borondo paints on a building becomes directly relevant to the character and nature of the building – not separately assigning meaning to the building, but amplifying the original personality of the surface itself. His art has variant themes of changing nature, including paintings that appear, rustic, melancholic, grotesque yet beautifully captivating representations of the human form.
Borondo employs the skillful movement and rendering of thick brushstrokes to give form to the figures’ postures and poses. The overall bodily form is further accentuated by applying this traditional yet contemporary technique to create the highlight and shadows in the painting. Borondo’s paintings also display evidence of stunningly sprayed drips of paint running across and down the full scale of figures, forcing one to wonder whether such artistry was added mistakenly or specially designed for that particular space.
This artist’s work is mind-blowing and quite different from your usual street art. Have a look at his amazing street art paintings below.
