Drab urban landscapes are the bane of anyone living in busy cities, where the daily monotony and monopoly of concrete wears down the soul. No wonder it's a psychological relief to come across a well-maintained green space, an awesome public art installation, or some mind-bending street art.
Shoring up the latter category is Miami-based artist Douglas Hoekzema (a.k.a. Hoxxoh), who creates these incredible spray-painted murals using repetitive strokes of electrifying colours, arranged in circular and sweeping forms.
There is a mysterious depth to Hoxxoh's works -- they seem like unexpected and otherworldly portals to another dimension, a singularity made visible, and one that makes you think you can step right through the wall into another place and time.
Hoxxoh's murals seem to pulse with a powerful, fractalized energy. And just as in nature, with the repetition of the tiniest details at scale, a grander, more harmonious order emerges, expressed with abstract patterns of continuity and flow.
Art is both a process and a product, a means and an end, aspiring to inspire. Against the chaotic backdrop of the city, works like these amazing murals emanate a sense of much-needed vitality and harmony from within our urban landscapes. See more over at Hoxxoh and Instagram.
