Need & Existence

Piece description from the artist

With the metal rails slicing into the lush scenery, this piece displays a balance between what is necessary, and what is there. The elements inside are up to your interpretation to decide which signify which. Taken in Elgin, the fastest growing city in Illinois, a certain nostalgia is found in the nooks and corners of this city. A blend of history, worn objects, and the mesh of nature and infrastructure encompass the habitat that Elgin is. What is needed on this world? Oxygen from a tree? Transportation for a Job? The intent here is to represent the relationship of Need & Existence. And the ultimate path that carries both to a place unknown.

About Davy Mellado

Media, PA

Taking root in fine art and commercial marketing, Davy Mellado focuses on providing work of finite detail and attention. The more you look closer at his work, the more there is to discover. This is one of the many reasons why a large medium works well for his pieces. Davy spends time calculating the precise movement of your attention as your eyes pace over the canvas. The dynamics of contrast, relationship, and hierarchy create a sense of complexity while keeping your eyes intrigued. Davy has studied Architectural design at a private liberal arts school and has been taught by a fine arts professional before that. While recently entering into the professional art field, Davy had many companies feature his work on their website, as well as utilized in mass print to multiple countries. Davy has also collaborated with Emmy Award-winning Video Boutique company Evolve IMG. Many of his influences include Jean Jullien, Peter Belanger, and Harry Callahan. Starting off in photography, Davy has spent years shooting pictures, refining his work and receiving many positive reviews and comments. But what seems to spark his interest is the close attention to making strange scenes look realistic. This is Davy Mellado. Welcome, and enjoy his work.
