1974

Ink wash

Quick Overview

Onib Olmedo creates this richly detailed inkwash portrait of a boy which confronts viewers with a certain magnetism. Known for his depictions of the members of marginalized society and street dwellers, Olmedo distorts faces and scale in order to highlight aspects of his figures. In this work, he paints a boy sitting, the delicate linearity of the solihiya balancing the shadow that engulfs the rest of the composition. His gaze extends past the painting, suggesting poignancy and melancholy in his thoughts.
