Introduction to Linear Perspectivism by Erik Hesson
Feeling confident after a few years of developing my style and skill, I (Erik Hesson) created an innovative new art style called Linear Perspectivism. A scene is represented from a single perspective, using basic geometric forms, dynamic texture and vibrant colors to create an idealized three-dimensional abstract composition.
With this new style, I am attempting to create a new visual language in art, one which uses the Classical Principle of Linear Perspective as the predominant construct of the composition/aesthetic, as opposed to being an underlying design element.
"What Cubism did to the Cube, Linear Perspectivism does to Linear Perspective," I have been quoted as saying. Linear Perspectivism has three main influences: Kandinsky's Geometric Abstraction, Picasso's Cubism and the Classical Principles of Linear Perspective and Proportion.
Linear Perspectivism - An art style and painting technique, developed and used by artist Erik Hesson, in which a scene is represented from a single perspective; using basic geometric forms, dynamic texture, and vibrant colors to create an idealized three-dimensional abstract composition. This style is an attempt to create a balanced fusion of Geometric Abstraction, Cubism, and Realism; incorporating mathematical calculations and sacred geometry into the three-dimensional composition to achieve the desired aesthetics. This style was first introduced in 2017 by Erik Hesson, a resident artist of St. Petersburg, Fl.
