It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of artwork filled with thick, saturated color. But there are times when I happen upon an artist whose work feels like a breath of fresh air. When I saw Mexican born Maria Olivares Alfaro’s work, it felt refreshingly light and simple.
I hate to use the word simple to describe her work, because I feel like it has such a negative connotation. But they seem like beautiful little doodles.
Alfaro’s work has a young, naive quality but they are too elegant to feel immature. There is a thoughtfulness and sense of restraint behind each composition.
