Bright Colors Theme: Art Exhibition of Felix Murillo

>The worldwide Daily Photo theme for August 1 is "Bright Colors." I have chosen photos of an art exhibition in Tamarindo in July featuring Costa Rican artist Felix Murillo, whose work certainly contains bright colors.
The second photo shows a room full of Felix Murillo's paintings. He is a largely self-taught, 39 year old Costa Rican artist who has a gallery in Jaco. Some of his works carry the viewer into an aquatic dream of fish and other fanciful figures.

The table in the center displays the fused glass art of Andrea Amano. Both artists had their work on display in an exhibition during the first half of July in temporary space on the first floor of the Pacific Park condominium building in the enter of Tamarindo.

I apologize that the spotlighting on the paintings made them difficult to photograph. I encourage you to check out the websites of Felix Murillo and Andrea Amano glass. Both websites have photo galleries of their work.

Very interesting! And yes, he doth like bright colors...and fish. Actually, your photos came out pretty well...those bright lights are killers.

A single piece would look fabulous on a plain wall. I like his art!

Not only are they bright but they are quite good and that's coming from a very picky modern art watcher!

Sure are bright paintings, Dave. I love artists who use colour - seems they are so optimistic when they do.

What a joy it must be to see this artist's work, David! Sometimes it might feel like sensory overload, I'd bet.

It must be amazing environment, which allows the usage of such bright colours. May you all have a good start into the new month.

Hi, thanks for visiting Hartford Daily Photo. I think I would need sunglasses if I had his work in my house.

What a colorful display! I bet they would have frowned upon you turning the lights off, but it still made a great photo!
