La esencia de Klimt

One of the most influential artist in my fashion illustrations is certainly the fabulous and amazing Gustav Klimt. His exploration of details, patterns, dreamy colours and shapes can make any artist fall into the world of his creations.

I remember the day that my first attempt on oil paint failed totally as I aimed way to high. I tried to copy his famous painting of a girl, Mäda Primavesi (1912). Ohh... Dreams! Hahah..
It turned out so bad, i keep it permanently hidden behind another painting on my wall.

Here is another Klimt inspired creation. This time coming from a talented artist based in Madrid, Spain, Kattaca. I have never seen a Klimt portrayed so beautifully!

Title: La esencia de Klimt
