Michael Garfield's Drawings Feature Colorful Symmetrical Patterns

Sketch artist Michael Garfield combines symmetrical patterns with psychedelic color schemes to create artwork pieces inspired by the sounds and rhythms found in music.

While Garfield is an artist, he is also a musician. The combination of the two passions is frequently present as inspirational forces in much of his work. Garfield uses a wide variety of marker, pencil and paint hues to create vivid, chromatic and technicolor pieces. First, Garfield sketches several intertwining patterns such as flowers, eyes, DNA sequences or simple shapes. Then, he fills in the patterns with a repetitive color scheme creating a kaleidoscopic symphony of shapes, colors and lines. The viewer's eye is never bored looking at Garfield's intricate art pieces because there is so much to take in at once.
