Only Love - Abstract Art

Only Love – Graffiti Style Abstract 

Pure color joy abstract expressionism oil painting in two panels including the words “Only Love” in wild graffiti style. Expressive strokes in red, yellow, copper and gold overlap a solid gray to white grate pattern. Beneath it all, you’ll see an abstract painted background of lush full spectrum color fields.

This painting grew in a joyous evolutionary artistic process. I was listening to a lot of U2 at the time, and the currently new song “Magnificent” was in high rotation while I painted. The artwork was originally intended to be an abstract composition as simple as the background layer. I wasn’t satisfied with the amount of visual depth I’d achieved. The gray to white grate was inspired by the song’s lyrics about the scars love can heal. At  that point, I had to go full Basquiat graffiti style and cover up those “scars” with some color “only love” text to make the visuals “come forward.” I included the expressive words “only love.”
