Two passionate Oakland artists explore a more whimsical side of life.
Yvette M. Buigues - Drawings
Yvette M. Buigues lives and works in Oakland, California. Her inspiration comes from no one place in particular; in her work one can see and feel her exploration of the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of everyday life. Through bold images she speaks to relationships between people, the state of the world, the human condition. The mulitple layers of color and detail often times contain subtle observations and a darker sense of humor. Buigues works most often with acrylic paint. she finds great pleasure and touches base with whimsy in her pen and ink drawings, and experiments in seriography. About the drawings: I have always kept a journal of drawings. Until recently they mostly stayed there, not meant for others to see. At the suggestion of a friend, I began posting them on Instagram and Facebook, the response was inspiring, so here they are. Whimsical yet possessing plenty symbolism and emotion, I find these entertaining with a life of their own. heavyblackline.com buigues.tumblr.com
