Chris Trueman draws on Op Art and Abstract Expressionism for his distinct style that references graffiti and digital art. “I make paintings based on the premise that the sum of two contradicting experiences does not cancel out but creates a whole separate experience unto itself,” the Southern California–based artist has said. Trueman achieves his unique optical and textural effects by alternating between gestural painting and spray-painting. Working on unprimed canvas, he uses squeegees and brushes to apply gestural swatches of paint. He then tapes off layers of his canvases and sprays acrylic paint on them, noticing how it adheres to the canvas. Such techniques create hard-edged bands of untouched canvas that bring a sense of order to his otherwise expressionistic compositions.
