March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is Italian artist Viavisconti. Viavisconti’s work is characterized by flat areas of vivid color which nevertheless cleanly and clearly describe the volumes of the objects she portrays. Although she has worked in traditional media such as acrylic paint, most of her recent work has been made digitally on her iPhone, using a variety of Apps (programs). I am especially a fan of her portraits, and thus very glad she has contributed 26 so far to the Portrait Party!

You can check out Viavisconti’s iPhone fingerpaintings and other work here:

Julia KayWe’re having a Portrait Party on flickr – more than 100 artists drawing each other! Here’s one of Viavisconti’s portraits of me from the party. If you’re an artist who’d like to draw/paint other flickr artists, please join the Portrait Party at: www.flickr.com/groups/portraitparty/
