COURTESY OF THE ARTIST © GEORGE EURESTI HOPI MAN
George Euresti is both a Cubist and Surreal artist that echo's Classical technique. His current body of work has been inspired by History and Culture from Native Americans and Mexican Aztec history. Euresti's influences range from Graffiti, Renaissance masters and especially Cubist Pablo Picasso.
This blending of style is evocative and alluring giving Euresti a freedom to transition between genres. The surreal nature of his work is called upon freely and though his strong influences remain with cubism it is highly contemporary.
Within this synthesis of styles lies a uniqueness that Euresti makes his own. He takes both Cubism and Surrealism to the next level. Both cubism and surrealism were phased out eventually when Abstract Expressionism was declared the style of the day. But there are always artists who continue the tradition and make it their own. Thomas Kapsalis stayed painting his De Stijl hard-edge work for his entire career rejecting the abstract expressionism of the day.
Euresti also does not waver from his influences. His strong roots in graffiti may still be present but he now shows more Surreal ideals in his powerful Southwest-infused imagery. The technique of the old masters is Euresti's biggest attribute as molding the images to his will seems a cakewalk. He has the ability to paint whatever he feels and executes each piece with relentless precision.
