A nice lil pair of experimental pastel paintings. I had the idea for these so long ago that I can’t remember what the inspiration behind the brush stroke idea was, but I do know the colours were inspired by some work done by @ollyfathers . I also knew I wanted some big TEXTURE. These didn’t turn out exactly how I anticipated. I was kinda making things up as I went. I don’t typical work with oil paints but I knew they’d give me the thick feel I wanted. The popcorn ceiling background fluke made me laugh entirely too much. If you look closely you can see the oil from the paint creating a halo effect around the strokes... so that was interesting... Definitely a learning process. Definitely want to try this again but more thick, chunky texture with the strokes and maybe make some background changes. Ya never know. Swipe to see a close up of some texture and a different angle of the small. . . . (Image Description: a pair of square paintings, one large (18x18”) and one small (12x12”), with cool white textured backgrounds resembling popcorn ceiling. There are various thick strokes of pastel blue, pink, green, yellow and purple oil paint making up different shapes like L’s, arches, and squiggles arranged to fit together in a square). . . . #pastels #square #oilpainting #abstract #experimental #experimentalpainting #oilpaint #windsorandnewton #deserres #blue #green #yellow #pink #purple #popcornceiling #retro #pastel #soft #texture #details #detailsmatter #brushstrokes #painting #colour #color #canadianartist #torontoart

@billelis inspiration pt 2 Momento Mori means "remember that you/it will die" - reminding us that nothing except energy lasts forever. It is a medieval Latin theory and practice of reflection on mortality, especially as a means of considering the vanity of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits. Momento Mori cultivates a discipline of detachment by turning the attention towards the immortality of the soul and the afterlife. Similarly in Buddhism, "maranasati" meditates on the same concept. "Marana" means Death and "Sati" means awareness. This concept also repeats itself in Japanese Zen Samurai culture, Tibetan Buddhism, and Islam. 3d Art & image of @billelis Not for sale. at Toronto, Ontario

I don’t usually do Throw Back Thursdays, but what the heck... The first Spider-Man image is one I did in Sharpie markers in January 2013. This image had pushed my boundaries as an artist at the time, as the majority of my work was comic strips, and I was only starting to discover the world of marker art possibilities. The second Spider-Man image is one I did in 2015, also with Sharpie markers (I actually did this drawing while on the phone at work in my Moleskine sketchbook lol). Since then, I’ve done so many marker art illustrations, (it is my primary medium), and I’ve sold many prints of these drawings at Fan Expo and Comic-con. I’m always learning and developing new skills as an artist, but it is cool to look back and see the growth 🎨🎨🎉🎉 #tbt #throwbackthursday #spiderman #spidermanart #spidey #marvel #marvelart #marvelcomics #fanart #cartoon #toronto #torontoart #torontoartist #art #artist #cartoonist #arthub #drawing #illustration #drshorty #copic #copicpens #sharpie #sharpiemarkers #sharpiedrawing #sharpieart #markerart #marker #markerartist #markers

My guts went rotten at sleepover camp, I had a fever, I remember yelping like a housemutt.⁣ ⁣ It was movie night and they left me alone in my cabin where I listened to Mozart on my yellow walkman, the cassette's label also yellow, the Jupiter Symphony on repeat.⁣ ⁣ I was fevered in my bunkbed and the music was going through me and then a woman was there, well, she was probably sixteen, but she was very pretty and mature. She said:⁣ ⁣ "Come on, you can't just lie here all alone, I'll take care of you."⁣ ⁣ She took my hand, I was ten, and we walked over to the barn where they were projecting a movie, Gremlins maybe, I don't remember.⁣ ⁣ She told me to lie down and put my head in her lap. She gave my head some pats and said "there there."⁣ ⁣ I couldn't understand why she was being so incredible to me, such attention from a woman, this camp is crazy, my god!⁣ ⁣ Anyhow, it happened, I'm certain it happened, I remember all those kindly pats, I wasn't just lying in a bunk and wobbling over and under and through Mozart's triumphant cascades, it really happened, it could have been yesterday.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ __________________⁣ •⁣ ____________________________<>_______⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ ______________________________________________⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ PS Please ignore these horrible hashtags:⁣ #artbrut #naiveart #surrealart #psychedelicart #weirdart #mixedmedia #quirkyart #contemporaryart #emergingartist #undergroundartist #abstractart #outsiderart #torontoart #artcollector #artcurator #dreamscape #dreamart #colorfulart #artforsale #artforsalebyartist #canadianart #canadianartist #neoexpressionism #mysticalart #abstractexpressionism #contemporaryartist #surrealism #oilpainting #miniaturepainting #abstractpainting

SCRIBBLES. There’s joy in a fast scribble. It always leads to more scribbles. It starts to connect. It literally draws me into something. I begin to feel connected. Drawing is a form of meditation. The intense focus carries a sense of balance and wisdom. I never know what is going to emerge as I open the channels and let the marks reveal layers of subconscious imagery. It is surprising when I step out of the moment and view the work. It makes me smile.
