theStudio Artist of the Week…


Xochi Solis, Painter, Austin, Texas

This week, painter Xochi Solis caught our eye, with her love of color and simplicity. Xochi builds up small painted collages – stacks of discrete blobular forms pasted onto museum board. Foremost among Xochi’s creative influences is the city of Austin itself. Her work is easily recognizable for its vibrant color and shapes, which are all inspired by a vast amount of textures and materials, such as objects like paint chips from local hardware stores, paper, plastics, vinyl and clippings from science books.

For more on Xochi’s work visit her on the web.
