City Landscape Artwork

The fast-paced pulse of urban life is the recurring theme in many of Mark LaguŽís paintings.
His canvases capture the overall spirit of the city in loose, dynamic brushstrokes.  The artistís travels take him to many of the worldís most sophisticated cities where he thrives on the hustle and bustle of life that teems daily in the streets.

 

New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris for inspiration. One of his favorite cosmopolitan cities is Rome, Italy.  The artist says, ďRome seems to fit my aesthetic well because there is such a mix between modern life and classical architecture.Ē  This very talented painter considers the shapes that make up the city environment a beautiful, yet abstract, composition just waiting to be put on canvas.

Light is a prominent factor in LaguŽís work.  His scenes of day and night life in the city are formed by the manner in which light reflects and creates interesting shapes that offer the artist an opportunity to portray the scene in a vibrant, abstract design.  Night time offers the artist a wide range of contrastsÖdark against light and the mixture of architectural elements offer an endless palette of color and movement waiting for LaguŽ to bring to life. The artist draws the viewer into the scene with a story about everyday people and life in the cityÖfamiliar things combine to form a total ďcityscapeĒ that is an exciting, mesmerizing image to behold.

A native resident of Montreal , Canada , LaguŽ has made the journey from a childhood talent to entering art school at age 17 to a very successful career as an animation artist at a top studio.  The artistís desire to paint on his own full-time came in 2002.  He considers his technical experience in color, handling of paint, and knowing the importance of values as the solid foundation for his success.
