Guy Yanai Creates Exciting and Vibrantly Hued Abstract Still Lifes

Starting with fairly unremarkable objects and mundane scenery as his subjects, Guy Yanai masterfully creates abstract still lifes that are infused with vibrancy and excitement.

Using attractively contrasting colors that simply pop off of the canvas, mostly in shades of bubblegum pink, bright blue and vivid green, the artist creates lively and cheerful scenes. There are many portraits of plants in this series, but none of them are alike and all of them strip away the curvy and organic shapes of the plants, leaving behind a simplified, geometric appearance that looks as though it was created out of pieces of cutout construction paper.

The pretty primary school colors and basic shapes that form each of the abstract still lifes in Guy Yanai's collection add a sweet innocence to the paintings.
