Buy Sappho's Garden, a Paint on Canvas by Franck de las Mercedes from United States. It portrays: Erotic, relevant to: erotica, collage, couples, erotic, female, abstraction, kiss, love, lovemaking, male, nude Growing up in New York City, I was exposed to the visual clash of graffiti, decaying walls, torn-up ads and the effect that time and the elements have on surfaces. My surroundings and a fascination with the abstract expressionism movement played a major role in me becoming a visual artist. My collage paintings fuse photographic imagery, sketches, drawings, journal pages and scribbles on pieces of scrap paper and text art applied with acrylic paint. Bright colors and raw textures are an essential element in my work.
