Drawing, like painting and printmaking, can be used to convey a social message and depict a certain reality.
Arte Arta wishes to celebrate all forms of art and the stories they evoke, and drawing is one of them.
Just like painting or collage, this type of art makes it possible to illustrate the subtleties of a multi-faceted environment from an aesthetic perspective.
Whether contemporary , abstract or more realistic , we firmly believe that drawing is never dull. Beneath its stripped-down art appearance, there are often hidden treasures of inventiveness.
In fact, as you will see, many of our designers do not conceive drawing as being necessarily monochrome.
Rather, they enhance it with the help of other artistic mediums such as:
- Acrylic paint
- Pastel pencils
- Black ink
- Digital illustration
- Gold leaf
In terms of artistic inspiration, the subjects likely to give rise to the creation of drawings are as diverse as they are numerous.
From animal drawing to figure drawing, this way of putting ideas on paper has notably served the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt van Rijn and Jean-Antoine Watteau.
