Trippy Paintings of Modern Architecture Saturated With Color

When viewed in black and white, the buildings that artist Paul Davies depicts in his series of architecture paintings wouldn’t seem out of place in Palm Desert. Flat, boxy, and often surrounded by palm trees and pools, his subjects look like textbook post-Frank Lloyd Wright modern design. The twist is that Davies shows these structures in psychedelic patterns and colors. While some works are more outlandish than others, each painting is filled with surreal hues, from electric yellow to sunset pink. The cognitive dissonance between the buildings’ clean lines, which Davies achieves using stencils, and the crazy mix of colors the artist fills in makes for a dizzying yet intriguing viewing experience. Click through for a look at the series, which we discovered via Visual News, and visit Davies’ website to see more of his work.
