Piece description from the artist
Upon reflecting on what we have to give to this world, we cross a divide between health and efficiency. Everyone has been at this gap, maybe while making the choice between following a silly dream or getting a degree. We tend to think of life as a linear path, pressuring us to choose only one. This piece embodies the ambiguity of desire and obedience. Specifically, the moment when we find ourselves not moving forward, a vital and yet meaningless state of null significance.
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.
