The insanely colorful work of Jose Rivas is creative and beautiful. The artist depicts couples in intimate moments, featuring close-up shots of faces in a way that is abstract but accurate.

The technique that Jose Rivas uses for this series involves a series of short, multicolored brush strokes that look similar to smudges. The result is reminiscent of a mosaic made of various abstract shapes. This technique achieves a unique look in Jose Rivas' work, with lots of texture and eye-catching color.
