The globs of paint on José Lourenço’s (ho-ZAY low-REHN-so) paintbrushes look good enough to eat. To make these works, which might remind you of tiny ice cream cones, Lourenço mixes together several colors of paint in swirling designs. Then he dips a paintbrush into the gooey mixture. After photographing his works, he posts them on Instagram with fun hashtags like #mango, #candy, and #jose_icecream. The images get thousands of likes!
“My gallery of images are feelings, ideas, reflections, paintings, and time frames,” the artist remarks.
