Artist Crush: Jose Arenas

Friday, May 14, 2010 · 1 Comment

Jose Arenas‘ work is folksy, fanciful and lively. I also sense influences of one of my favorite artists, Frieda Kahlo. The bright colors and patterns, the child-like naivete and the personal allegories- it all feels very Kahlo to me. These imaginative paintings, which some might call quaint or sentimental, are a refreshing escape from the more popular stuff that hits the same tired notes over and over again. I have a great deal of appreciation for artists like Arenas who go against the grain and show us what’s possible.




Jose Arenas’ work is available through San Francisco gallery and AAF exhibitor, Hang Art.
