Art of Argentina: the paintings of Xul Solar

Standard

Ospreys today found out about the life and work of Argentinian surrealist artist, Xul Solar, who painted colourful, dreamlike visions of future worlds, landscapes and buildings. After discussing some of his most famous pictures, Ospreys used features of his work as inspiration for their own art. We began by making a careful sketch, before beginning painting with a background wash of thin colour, then adding smaller details with bolder colours. Pupils explored using vivid colours and let their imaginations run free.
