Vinyl on Vinyl: Mechanical Romanticism!

11.24.2013 – Whenever there’s an exhibit launch at Vinyl on Vinyl that features group or a solo artist it’s always refreshing to see art. Not just the usual works in the comic books but also through contemporary art rarely seen in the mainstream.

There’s always new discovery in this unexplored realm this side in the urban lifestyle. The latest solo show featuring Iyan De Jesus first ever exhibit holds whole new perspective when it comes to contemporary art in “Mechanical Romanticism.

Last Friday night’s first ever solo show by Iyan De Jesus was sold out all works on exhibit reserved. Half-length portraits of nubile women definitely caught quite an attraction. The supple flesh and noble image of women with a background of interlocking sprockets cogs, and axles in its fine detail appears to be done in digital. But with the extreme details of each art piece doesn’t come that easy as everyone thought.

Iyan De Jesus did not have any formal training as an artist, who began her interest through digital art then went on to have self-education in doing traditional on her own.

Every art piece is unique, but what are consistent in each of her works are the details of the subject. The hair and face appears to be inspired from actual ramp models featured in cover magazines. There are so many details going through with each piece and its glorious how it was executed.

If you’re one of those lucky enough to own Iyan De Jesus’ featured work from the exhibit consider it one of a kind, which you’ll never see anywhere else in the world. If you missed last Frifay night’s launch check out these images her solo show…

“Mechanical Romanticism” exhibit will run for two weeks and you can visit the actual works at Vinyl on Vinyl located inside The Collective located in Malugay st., Makati City.
