PIECES OF FEELING – VAKSEEN {ARTIST TO WATCH}

Vakseen-Imitation of Love 12x12_ (Acrylic on wood panel) 2015

Touches of Photorealism, cubism, and fashion design aesthetic dance in these paintings by artist and painter Vakseen. While working on hit records in the music business has played a driving force in his career, itʼs Vakseenʼs (born Otha Davis III) passion for the arts that has served as his key to sanity in the fast paced entertainment industry. The self-taught, Los Angeles-based artist has created a distinct collage-influenced painting style that fuses elements of surrealism, cubism, photorealism and fashion design onto canvas. Drawing inspiration from women, emotions, and popular culture, his paintings deal with the theme of personal identity and evolve around society’s idolization of beauty, as well as the enhancements women endure to obtain this level of “perfection”. Currently a resident artist at The Hive Gallery, his paintings have been selected for over 40 solo and group exhibitions in various galleries and venues throughout Los Angeles. His work has also been featured in over 45 art and literary magazines and been sold to collectors and art enthusiasts worldwide.
