Many artists can get obsessed with their primary source of inspiration causing them to explore the subject again, and again, and again. Columbia-born artist Alexis Duque is no exception, embracing his passion for urban architecture in his impressively detailed acrylic paintings.
Taking inspiration from our overcrowded and overpopulated cities, New York-based Duque comes up with his own imaginary ones. Most of his works are influenced by ancient Roman and Greek architecture, though some of them can easily be called futuristic. The buildings are suffocating from the lack of space in Duque’s mainly monochromatic paintings, stressing the greyness of our modern urban environment. Only sometimes a few colorful lights brighten up the world of rigid lines and geometric forms, leaving a glimmer of hope.
